Paint & Finish The Simple Woodspirit Face

Part 1

Part 2

This video will complete the simple woodspirit face that we carved in the previous videos by applying an acrylic finish. Although it appears quite simple, this finishing method took me many years to develop into something that consistently and effectively works for me. Nothing about finishing a carving (or even the carving itself) is in black or white so even with these instructions, set yourself "free" to experiment with different ideas that you might glean from me, someone else, and especially the ideas that will most certainly begin to pop into your own head as you build up more experience. Before long you will most certainly begin to develop your own unique methods of carving, painting, and finishing a carving that work effectively for you.

As always, be safe and have fun!
