What's Next?

Lots of great suggestions.  I think we'll go with the idea of doing a Miner as that would be a great platform for lots of neat details.  I can see pick axes, shovels, carbide lamps, lunch pail, wheel barrow, maybe even an ore cart and a hole in the mountain.  Sound like a challenge?  I think so.   I'll keep him in the period of the late 1800's and downsize the figure from what I've normally been carving.  I think I still have some coal left over from my model train days that will come in handy.  Will probably have to buy an extra tube of black paint too!  Could that be a wad in his jaw?

Stay tuned!  The fun's about to begin!

  1. Please, please do a video of all of it. I'm so excited about this one I can't wait. With all the things you mentioned it can be a very big learning experience too. Great Idea, Ginny

  3. This one will be of great interest to me. I am particularly anxious to see how you do his clothing etc that was typically worn by the miners of that era.

  4. I like any subject you do as I learn something from each one. Will be great to see you do another tutorial, seems like forever since there was one on the blog...not complaining, as you have other things to do, just that we are addicted to your lessons. Should be great fun.

  5. Thank You Lynn

    I'm from a Western Pennsylvania coal mining town and would like to learn how to detail miners, so that I can incorporate those details in my carvings of local mining history.

    Thanks again
