Ark Animals

These 2 to 4 inch pairs of animals are now ready to be painted.  After carving with a rotary tool, I dipped them into amber shellac.  By carving them with a worn sanding sleeve and dipping them into shellac no additional sanding is necessary.

Large Ark

With some fall shows and sales coming up, I decided I needed a large Noah's Ark as a focal piece in my display.  I started this one several days ago.  It's not nearly done yet, but one can get an idea of it's size and style.  I need to complete the detail around the doors and windows.  I suspect I'll carve around 30 pairs of animals for this one.
