Carve an Old World Santa ornament combining two different styles of wood carving. The face is carved in traditional full relief and the beard and areas around the hat are carved in a pierced relief fashion. This adds texture and interest, creating negative space also adds dimension and lends a nice flow to the carving. The small size of this project also cuts down on the investment of time and is a great way to build confidence in creating realistic facial features before tackling larger carvings. In this project Mark pays special attention to the details of the carving process enabling the viewer to readily understand and grasp the woodcarving techniques shown.
