Carving cottonwood bark has become very popular over the last few years. Cottonwood carves easily and has a beautiful grain. The most popular subject for carving cottonwood bark was wood-spirits in the beginning. Although it remains the most popular, carving little whimsical cottages or houses has now taken many carvers interests. We have a large inventory of Cottonwood Bark imported from northern BC. We also have a few DVD’s related to the subject.
Carving faces and especially eyes presents a real challenge to most carvers. Jim Redhawk leads you through various methods of carving eyes in this two-part DVD series. Carving is done in Cottonwood Bark but of course the same techniques can be applied to any project. Available only in the set of two ...not available individually. Includes a Template.
