    Hi Laz, it's a good begining, the most important thing is to have pleasure when you carve. The rest comes with time and work.

    Hi Phil, in France we used to talk with the body, the hands, the eyes, with different degres of understanding, of homour etc.... and i think that all the people in the world are like us.

    Hi all, thanks for the information Natasha. Kodo's leaves is a "point", an aim, very far away for me, and i must get over many stages , my latest leaf is just one of these stages. The most important thing is : i'm happy when i carve ! and i hope for a long length

    dead leaves

    Hi all, hi Janel. I used a power tool, to give a rough aspect . And, espacially, i don't break the thin parts with it. I used hand tools and power tools to make the veins . On this leaf i used oil painting dilute with puppy oil. I have not find the better dyeing for boxwood. I'm still looking for it. I'll try to make a photo to see the details.

    Hi all. I think that critic is necessary to grow. Leon tell me a good critic , and in my mind i feel what he says. Since the begining, i know that this leaf is not like the first, it's rigid. The kind words are very sympathics, it help us to feel good. But when an other carver takes time to see what you do, compares your different works, and tell you his feeling, i think that it is a compliment. If you don't want critic, you don't show what you do ! And if sometime the critic is clumsy , don't worry and try to understand what want to say your speaker. I tell that because i think that sometimes i'm clumsy , i don't speak very well english and it's hard to say exactly what i think.
