Chip Carved Egg

I carved a tree design to both sides of this basswood egg. The egg is 2 inches in diameter and almost 3 inches tall. I drilled a hole in the top to hold artificial flowers.

Santa Ornament

This Santa is carved from a 2 inch block cut at an angle  and is 6 inches long. I carved a layered beard and hair. The back is dished out.The beard and hair are painted with light buttermilk by Americana. Then I highlight with white. I used a bristle brush and dab most of the paint off. Also on the carved ridges of the hat although it doesn't show in the picture.
