Hey folks... I do apologize for not participating as often as I should. As a teacher, and teaching new subjects this year..... I've been as busy as a three legged cat in a sandbox! I have been working on a few projects though as time allows. Here's one I accepted as a request from a previous customer... I've never attempted anything like this.... A staff with a catfish topper.... All one piece. I've still got a lot of work to do.... Blending paints and such.... Not real pleased yet, but we'll see.... Jaw Wood Organism Fish Adaptation

Yep.... I agree that I should have explored the relief whiskers.... I like the way they're done in your example. CV3, What would you suggest on how to work the flaws out.... Sanding or filling. Those are little Beetle trails that were under the bark. There are also some small cracks in the top of the head. I appreciate all of you guys.... With your help and suggestions.... Thanks!

Thanks again guys! I really like the idea of the pearlized paint.... May have to look for that. If I could blend them well, that would get as close as possible to the look of the catfish's skin. And you know, those flaws didn't look near as bad until I started with the paints... Lol. Something needs to be done with them!

Thanks, CV3....I'm going to have time to work in the shop some today.... May get to work on this project a while. I've got three commisioned pieces started, and got a request for a fourth yesterday.... A knife handle shaped and carved like a Copperhead. This is supposed to be a hobby..... Lol
