Need Patterns For Begining Practice

Recommended Posts

i have not had much inspiration lately but i do want to carve. so i had thought to do some simple carving to practice and build up my technique and skills with my carving knives. i started looking for some patterns that i can cut out on my band saw and then start carving but i didnt have much luck with my google search. i am trying to find carvings that have both a front and side view of the project so i can rough it out on my band saw. if anyone can recomend a web site that i can get some free patterns that is not santa clause i would apreciate it. i am mostly inturested in charicture carving right now but any good patterns i will squirl away.

I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for but if you go to bing.com in the images and look for caricature carvings

you'll find a plethora of carvings. Some of them can be fun to carve and give away as gifts. Also you might

check out Caricature Carvers of America. Hope this helps.

i can find lots of carving pictures but not much luck in patterns that show both a frong and profile view so i can rough them out on the bandsaw.

I am in the process of learning gem stone carving, have been practicing on obsidian and other misc materials found in my buckets of rough. Took a lesson to learn the basics, a three fluted free form cabachon to learn how to use the machine and get introduced to the process of carving with diamond points, and polishing with diamond grit.

 

Does any one have a series of projects that would walk a person through the process of carving increasingly complex patterns to advance their skill set?

 

Thanks
