Church Statue

G'day, this is my first update on the church statue that I mentioned in my last post. I remembered to take the camera for some pics.

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,
