WIP: Part 3- Carving a crazy nature theme back scratcher!

I have finally finished by backscratcher and what a wonderful journey in carving it has been. I did decide that a video was the best way to present this project since there was so much relief carving so welcome yourself to the YouTube link above. I'm not too good at the video game yet but I think that you'll get a pretty good idea of how it turned out. I was very pleased about how the highlighting with the woodburner turned out in combination with the watered down acrylic paints.

Now I've got something to look forward to when that next itch starts pestering my back!


  1. Fantastic work, Dave! Carving, painting and finishing all first rate. When I saw the red, spotted animal the first thing that entered my mind was salamander. Newt, salamander, close enough for gummint work. Though I'm sure Gussie Finknottle would take issue with that.


  2. Thanks for the kind words. You're right Bob about it looking like a salamander and I completely left him out of the listing. Definitely looks like a cross between that and a newt. :)
