Swedish Deco Shell to Carve?

Recommended Posts

Carving done, except for the minor touch-ups. It's amazing what you'll see in a photograph vs. what the eye can see. I got tired of "chasing" whiskers and did the preparations for the 12" plaque. I'll get this turned/finished tomorrow and then take everything downstairs for the prep/paint/gilding work.

That's pretty neat. How much time you got in it so far?

I'm not really sure of the exact number of hours, because I work anywhere from 1-3 hours at a time, sometimes not doing anything for several days. My guess would be about 16-18 hours just for the shell. The plaque might be 1 hour. This time does not include any of the sealing/sanding/sealing/sanding/painting/gesso/sizing/leafing that goes into the finished project.
