Thank you. The oak leaf (actually 2 leaves) simply made this way:
Cut out leaf shape from a paper grocery bag. Spray paint to desired color. Cover surfaces with epoxy. It'll stay flexible but should last forever.
It's been a long time since I've posted, but I just finished this guy. It's my 1st foray into bird carving, but I think it turned out nicely, so I wanted to share it with you. I carved him out of basswood.
