• From Ralph Hausman on Carving an Art Nouveau Picture Frame - Episode 1

    Fantastic .... really enjoyed this session(s) ... had to watch it in two sessions (been milling some hackberry I dropped a couple years ago to enclose upper back balcony) but finished it tonight ... have wondered how you did the shadow lines but see now it involves back to back hollows ... really neat ... thanks .... buy the way, any chance of your doing a lesson or so on how you did the handmirrow you demonstrated with? Again, a great session ... thanks. rmh

      Hi Ralph,
      I'm so glad you enjoyed this lesson! That hand mirror is actually a lesson on my school. Here is the link: https://www.marymaycarving.com/carvingschool/2019/02/20/carving-an-art-nouveau-hand-mirror/

    Hey there Mary. Always enjoy the new video projects, and still hoping you might do a Maltese Cross some time. I am a retired firefighter and would really like to have a solid tutorial for that. Keep chipping away!!

      Thank you! That was part of the ceramic plate. It was made quite a few years ago and I have no clue!

    Great Live Stream!
    My greatest area of concern has been the finishing my carvings. Fear of messing up the hard work
    of my carvings by poor finishing technique. You have given much information on what to use and how
    to use stains in finishing techniques. I am anxious to use this knowledge.
    Well done Mary. Thank you!

      Great! I'm glad it has taken some of the mystery away. It has always frightened me also, but I'm slowly getting over it 🙂

    Learning so much with the livestream more of real life adjusting and how flexible design change can be.
    Thank you!
