This carving is from a Floyd Rhadigan pattern. It may not look like a reindeer but it sure is cute. The blanket on the back gives it some added color that I like. On the eyes I added a gloss medium over the painted eyes. It brings out the eyes. The gloss medium & varnish is by Liquitex. Bird carvers use this on the beak and quills of the bird. It looks very nice hanging on the tree.
