This pattern is associated with the second workshop in a 3-part series that introduces the fundamentals of Figure Carving. This free leathercraft pattern is provided so that students can work along as Jim Linnell carves these figures.
For the first work-along class, you will learn to apply the basics from the first workshop and add texturing techniques in the creation of a buffalo portrait. This class will add a good bit of instruction on texturing, introducing several different types of hair, as well as the development of horns.
Even those who have done some Figure Carving in the past will find value in this series as it will offer insights and feedback on proper techniques and good habits.
This pattern was originally created to be used with the video workshop Leather Figure Carving Part 2 - Texturing Techniques. We’d love to see what you make from it in our online Facebook group Elktracks Studio Creations.
