I carve lots of snakes on walking sticks and canes and I have always painted the snakes to look as life like as I possibly can, however a few months ago I had a request from a customer to create a carved snake cane, but paint the snake in very bright colors.

I put a picture of the cane with the bright painted snake and it has been a hit.

Since, then I have sold quite a few of the bright colored snakes. Most people don't care if there is a snake that's colored the color of the snake on the cane, they just think it's pretty.

Have you had anything simular happen?

Look great stixman. I just started on one of the curly sticks you sent. I am going to use a brass T handle. This will let me give the snake two heads one coming out either side of the handle. I hope looks like it is two headed.

Strange what peolple like over here its birds / dogs /market sticks and thumb sticks, yet very few wood spirits and have never seen a snake ?

Not only is the sytles different they tend to be a smaller shank ,not many shanks over 1.25 inches .Yet the twist ed shanks are sought after but never seem to be decorated with anything just olied or varnished
