My daughter bought me a book for my birthday in july called "Woodcarving the nativity" in folk art style by Shawn cipa,

Think it was bought with the intentions I would carve her the set of figures .theres about 15 figures in it

As always with Shawns books the photos and description is very good, but must admit i`m not a big fan of folk art but for those who are interested its a good book

I have seen similar diagrams, I just need to carve more. Oh, for the time. Between work and honeydo's, it doesn't leave much.

Nice Job Randy. :thumbsu: On Santa's I use white for fur and antique white or a satin cream for beard/hair. Makes a decent contrast.
