    couple of pieces I finished recently. Not thrilled with the color technique I tried on the frog, but live and learn. turned the crown as an afterthought and sprayed it with silver paint. Both were carved from silky oak I salvaged, a decent carving wood. The frog is about the actual size of a large bullfrog, the pig, about the size of a small loaf of bread.... why do I make this stuff? beats me.....

    Pretty damned cool Barry! I have entertained carving but missed the mark so terribly on my first few attempts I threw in the towel. I’m better at making carving chisels. :sarcastic: I think you did a hell if a job on both pieces.

    I think there both awesome! Looks like you did the Japanese texture technique on frog(the name escapes me), and I love the coloring!

    The pig is too cool! Love those ears!
