Notice - Arts and Crafts Page has been updated with two new wood carvings
carved from Basswood.
He's 9" long x 8" wide x 2" thick
"Greenman", a type of "wood spirit", is a popular traditional subject for wood carvers. They can be made out of wood, iron or ceramic and are generally painted green. I added a few drops of green oil paint to my "golden oak" oil wood stain and used that, with satisfactory results. I deliberately made my greenman with crossed eyes...because I plan to hang him high up on the wall of my deck and didn't want him staring at me all the time...he's supposed to be looking down from a higher location and staring into space.
