I really enjoyed this 9 episode series! I learned so many small things that I never knew and hope to learn so much more in these videos. I was humored to see that Mary used the same fingerless gloves that I use. I originally got my Weider fingerless gloves at Walmart and used them for my wheelchair before I got my electric mobility scooter. Now they are my carving gloves for general carving unless I am holding the piece in my hand and then I use my Kevlar carving gloves.
Still hanging on! Actually I was very glad to see these come out as I am recovering from surgery, and this gave me something to watch 🙂
I really like how, in Chapter 9 you 'fixed' that long skinny leaf like thing by connecting it to the larger leaf next to it, very well done, and lesson learned, that nothing is carved in stone until you decide that it is so.
Looking forward to the rest of it!
Thank you for a great video!
I especially liked the repair.
Minor suggestion: can the camera be a little further back so we can see your wrist motion as you carve. I, for one, would learn a lot from that.
Yet another example of a shell and acanthus design: https://pegsandtails.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/picture-this-x/
Too garish for my taste, yet shows the idea is pervasive.
