    I am also interested in canes and hiking poles just messing about with a stylized swann and testing out a bit of gold leaf to see if it will stand to the rigours of a hiking pole?, have carved a few toppers have a problem resizing photots keeps crashng so will post them later .anyway here is the swan. suprising how much the work improves after a couple of attempts . the site is helpful for developing ideads Carved from lime mounted on a hazel shaft with a 4" threaded steel rod .Gave the leaf a red undercoat 1st to evaluate the effect .used quite a lot so wears well
  4. Hello From Czech Republic

    Nice work It is difficult to carve small pieces in wood ,I mostly carve in lime wood . I like the attention to detail of the eyes and teeth although can`t make out what the material you have used I am always on the look out for new ideas for carving mostly for hiking poles but also carve puppets . I have carved several hiking pole toppers and keen on art deco etc, and looking to expand this into abstract work Currantly working on the female form to sit upon a hiking pole .most of the hiking pole toppers are of wild fowl although have carved some gargoyles I will post some photos when i resize them you must post more photos when you can.
