Whittling Little Folk

Project Information
This was my first time trying to do some whittling. On vacation I always like to do something with my hands. In the past I did some chipcarving. But personally I find this a little old fangled, and therefor I would do something different. And something that requires a few tools. I bought a book:


and tried it. I used basswood.

I had to throw a few away but in the end I managed to make thirteen. At home they were painted and now you can see the results.

These are so cute.  I think this would be fun to do when out camping.
Those are way cool, love em.

Main Street to the Mountains

Very cute! I like the fact they are small - one can be made in a short time.
Love the expressions you added!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Good work.
I like making little wood wizards.
So far, the few I made are from cottonwood.
They are neat Dutchy... looks like you are a one eyed soccer fan... the rugby player,

is missing.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Sharp looking. I tried whittling years ago, my fingers couldn't handle the pain of the cuts, gave it up. Good job. Mike

I'm sorry it hurt and you had to stop. I like to do it during my vacations. You need few tools.

very good carvings and for being your first time this is super impressive.  What did you use for paint?
Thanks Peter and Tony.

Potz: The expression arose spontaneously

NOTW: The cheapest poster paint I could find, which I treated with spray laquer.
