Wood Pieces

I mentioned before that I use to carve wood.  Here are two pirates carved from wood eggs.  I'm going to put eye screws in the top of their heads so they can be ornaments for a tree.  I haven't decided if I will keep one but they are slated to be on my holiday craft show table this weekend.

This little Santa is ready to be primed and painted.

I found two more Santa heads that also need painting.  They will get eye screws to be turned into ornaments.  The two on the right have key rings.

The unpainted ones will first be scrubbed cleaned of wood fuzzies and pencil marks.  Allowed to dry, sprayed with a fixative and then painted.  When that is dry, they are sprayed again and then a stain is applied.  I am looking forward to this show and will be posting more pics soon.
