Instead of wood, Tom uses sweet potatoes, which are firm enough to take the knife, and inexpensive enough to take a mistake or two. That makes them the perfect medium and as they dry and wizen, they take on wrinkles and twists that give them surprising and delightful character. Try it ~ its fun! 64pp
A brand new book where Tom concentrates on the caricature head by carving busts. About 8" tall, these carvings give plenty of room for detail and allow the carver to explore new ways of giving expression to their work. 64pp
With easy to follow, step-by-step instructions, Tom helps the carver bring the classic ballplayer out of a block of wood. Each cut is illustrated with a colour photograph. Fun! 64pp THIS BOOK IS DISCONTINUED AND THE PRICE SHOWN IS APPROXIMATELY 30% OFF THE LIST PRICE.
