Muy Caliente! - Part 13

With this one we start the second try on the left arm and hand…this time holding a plate.  I think you will find this one quite easy to do compared to that mountain we had to climb with the bowl.  Hopefully, please God, Part 14 will be the end of the carving part of this series and we can start painting which I’m really looking forward to.  I’m going to try and have some fun filling that plate with some south-of-the-border cuisine of the hot variety.  See there…..not only are you hopefully picking up some carving tips but soon we’re going to be running competition with the Cooking Channel!!!  Ay  Carumba!


  1. The plate looks very good,but I still like the bowl better, we haven't seen it on one of your carvings yet. I can really picture him all painted up, bright serape, beads of sweat on his brow...this is an exciting fella.

  2. I agree with Kent, I like the bowl better, but, I understand your misgivings about the size of the hand. I also like your philosophy about quality - someone taking the time to do something right. What was most interesting to me was in the beginning of the video, I was concerned about the placement of the plate being up against his body. When we hold a plate, it is usually away from the body. However, by the end of the vid, when you did the "fidgitting" and then put it back together, it came into place. Very nice! Jim
