The chosen piece of liquid Amber. The splits started as soon as the bark was removed.
1100 mm x 300 mm
My working plan.
Start of the roughing out stage.
At present I am carving two days per week and wrap the piece in wet cloth and seal with a plastic bag to try to slow down the mosture lose.When I take the cloth off all the cracks are closed but reappear as the day goes on. Things are not looking very promising but maybe I can carve through the splits into good wood
Until next time,
