Now for some burning. I’d didn’t do the whole figure but did hit all the areas so you can get an idea of how I go about it. In the next segment we’ll start painting.
Lynn he's really looking fantastic, as I knew he would, how about a close-up photo of the head before you paint him. I'm doing the head and I think something went waaaaaaaaayyyyy wrong. There are suppose to be 2 eyes aren't they,just kidding!Thanks you
I see you decided to use the arm with the bowl instead of the plate. I think both of them were great. I glad you showed how to do the fingers,as i have a little trouble there. Thanks, keep up the good work

Wow does your Burnmaster ever work fast (It needs to I guess just to keep up with you.) The Burnmaster must have now power than my little Razortip model. I find I have to crank it up to max and go real slow in order to burn a constant lone line.. short sweeps are ok though. Maybe I gott'a get me one of them there Burnmasters.. :)
I appreciated the burning lesson, I got a good quality burner this summer and already see a difference in my finished painting. Guess I need to bite the bullet and get a sand-o-flex too. I have a small budget each month that goes into a fund for carving, so since I really loaded upon wood at Carv Fest, I see a sand-o-flex in my future, Is that a grinder motor you have it on, or just any old motor like a swamp cooler or washing machine?
Just an old motor. I have two sanders....the one I used in the video and another with unslotted paper with heavier grit for just general sanding around the shop.
Kent, I have mine in an old drill that I have mounted on a workbench.
My Flex-o-sand is on my drillpress... I know that sounds wierd but it works great
Kent, at least you have a fund. I'm still picking up pennies off of the ground to fund my woodcarving!!! lol I thought it would be relatively inexpensive - a couple of knives, some wood (maybe!!! lol). Geez, I should have known this would be like fishing - buy a pole, some bait, some lures, a bigger tackle box, a boat, a depth finder, etc.... lol And while I don't have some of these things for now, down the road, I can see the value of the investments. Appreciate everyone's thoughts and comments. Jim
A lot of good tips Lynn, on burning as well as sanding with the Sand o flex. One question, at what RPm's does your motor run? I believe mine may be a bit too fast for the Sand o Flex. Thanks so much. Thanks Judy fred k
Ijust use a 1725 rpm appliance motor my Dad had.
