Okay, let’s paint the hat!
This video is a great example of why your carvings are so special. The amount of detail that goes even into painting a hat, is simply incredible. I must confess, sometimes the details are so subtle that I don't really see them (differences in shading for example) with my bad eyes, but I believe they are there...and I am sure that at a subconscious level they are picked up even by sight-impaired folks. I am raising my right hand and swearing to try and do more shading and blending in my carvings from now on.
Thanks for the comment Kent. You are so right. The details that aren't so evident are generally the ones that make the things that are easy to see that much more enjoyable to look at.
I followed the flesh video and now the hat, just great.and it has given me the extra added incentive to take more time on the shading and the little extras that one may not think of. Thanks fred k
Looking good Lynn! And now I understand what you mean when you tell us about burning the wood keeps the paint from bleeding out. Around the center of the hat where you were creating the sweat stain, it was easy to see the dark color spread out into the lighter color, yet, around the outside of the hat, the red color only went out to the burned line and stopped. Great videography Judy! Thanks :) Jim
