I read that Peter O'Toole started the habit of using foam pads on camel saddles during filming of Lawrence of Arabia :TwoThumbsUp:


Can you share details about the type of wood - basswood? - and specifics on your tools? Do you use a mallet or is your carving mostly freehand?


How do you keep your chisels sharpened?


Thank you!

Shell is all but detailed carved. It's amazing how a photograph can bring out small mistakes that beg to be corrected. I'll do some touch ups and then seal, sand. seal, sand, gesso, sand, gesso, sand, add sizing, and then lay the gold/silver leaf. Once this is done, I'll turn a 10 1/2" plaque to mount the carving to. The plaque will get paint and gilding!
