                                                         Kevin Rudd

June is here and so is winter. It has been very cold and wet the last few days.

I have completed three more in my Prime Minister series, and I will show them separately.

The first is Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia 2007- 2010.  The carving is  200 mm high in Jelutong and finished with danish oil,sealed with white shellac and wax. The glasses were made with thin handy wire, soldered and painted. A little trick I picked up from the Out West Carving blog .
