Leather Figure Carving the Rocky Mountain Elk
In this class, students learn to carve the majestic Rocky Mountain Elk. In addition to learning basic figure carving techniques, students will also learn the variety of techniques used to create the various hair textures on this magnificent animal.
The antlers alone can be a challenge to get formed and textured correctly, but these techniques will be shown as well. Doing the eyes, nose, mouth, ears and other features cleanly is what gives the character to this carving.
