The Wood Chopper

Now this one is an exact copy of one I did a few years back.  But as he too is headed to Santa Fe, and as I always liked the way the colors were so bright and worked so well together,  I thought it would gather a lot of interest setting in our display.  

The wood under his arm is actually some split twigs I picked up outside the shop and instead of using Medium Density Fiberboard for the snow I used partical board....a mistake I won't repeat.  It took a lot of Bondo and some spot putty to get that rough stuff smooth enough to paint.  One think I did new was using some texture spray paint as a base for the white.  That worked out really well, giving a great appearance.  A fun piece.

Hope you like him.
