I spent some of this morning putting the final touches to this piece and thought you might like to see how I went about it. Maybe there are a few things in the video that might help you put a little extra shine to your next creation.

I hope you enjoyed this series. I know it was a long one but sometimes that's what it takes to create some special as this one certainly is. There are more photos in the Gallery and I look forward to your comments.
At last! This segment will wrap up this project. I think it turned out much better than I thought it would. I hope you have as much fun creating your own as I did making mine.

Finally, we get to paint this old codger. Hopefully, there will be just one more segment after this one. While this has been a great project I'm looking forward to moving on to something else. I think I've got a great one lined up that will appeal to a wide audience and will not be near as hard as this one. Anyway, here is how I painted him.

Here is a new one I just finished up this morning. I really like the expression...he looks quite proud. I plan on doing some pretty decorative painting on his blanket so it should be a colorful piece. He will be holding a pipe when done. Hope you like him.

With the carving part finished it's time to get out the paint and brushes. But before that we have a little cleaning up to do and some quick work with the burning pen. Also, this segment is pretty long....just about 45 minutes so make sure your chair is comfortable. Popcorn might help too.
