Thought I would post a few of these learning projects out here, since this is one of my places I go in the morning before heading out to the shop. All the little plaques are out of old walnut paneling I took out of an old executive office before it was to be torn down, the layered dahlia is out of mahogany which was underneath the walnut. The walnut carves beautifully and it’s finish which is some kind of applied antiquing makes for a great contrast (almost like it was burned in)
I did the layer thing like the layered text method, but would really like to be able to do it all in one method (3d) - any suggestions on some freeware that will allow me to do some contouring work would be appreciated. Didn’t run a finishing pass - was just experimenting.
