Goosed

Just finished this carving off today with a little bit of orange paint for the beak and the feet......
The customer wanted an aggressive looking goose for her collection of farm animals

Im a little unsure of the strength in the neck, i have carved it a little thicker than what it should be, but hopefully it will retain its strength.

Re: Goosed

Thought it was real, trying to flee the kitchen

& Ive got my glasses on too. Im sure a bit further south from here in the foie gras regions Perigord; Lott & Dordoigne you'd get good money for your excellent work.

Whats stopping you? but the south is expensive & too hot in summer, can go over 40 degrees here.

There is carving in Foussais Payre near us in July , heres the blog

Thanks Si I'm just hoping the neck holds out once the customer has the carving.
