Wood Wildfowl and Fishcarving

Elaboration of the plan...

Gluing and cutting the basic parts of the carving.

Emptying the interior to avoid internal wood tensions (and cracks...)

Testing the carving on the oak panel

Starting the long process of burning scales one by one (4 to 5 different sizes...)...

Painting process. Basic coats applied then painting scales by scales with multiples layers in order to create a realistic iridescence. Coat of special varnish to protect and recreate the "wet" look...

Final product after many months of detailed works...
