Containing 80 woodcarving patterns and illustrations for birds, animals and fish, this book provides general carving instructions, illustration detail for fur growth and feather shading, as well as guidelines for accurate glass eye placement and construction of wire bird feet.
This set of three DVD's has in-depth instruction for beginning woodcarvers as well as detailed tips for power woodcarvers who want to enhance their technique. Frank Russell shows the many steps involved in bringing simple blocks of wood to life.
The Cotton Tail Rabitt, the Mallard Drake Duck, and the Small Mouth Bass are the focus of this film - the star, however, is Frank Russell himself. His congenial manner and accomplished teaching style lend to the enjoyment of learning to carve.
Pop says: Frank is a personal friend of mine but don't let that deter you ...he is an awesome talent and I highly recommend this wonderful 3 hour and 40 minute DVD set.
As always, Toms purpose is to help the readers carve their own project. He does this by taking the reader step-by-step through the carving process, with each step illustrated with a clear colour photograph. From the blank to the finished painted figure, everything a carver must do is clearly explained. 64pp
