So, here we go. This is a sled I am making for a Santa sculpt. I forgot to take a pic of the sketches on the modeling plywood so this series of pics starts after I cut them out. I hope you enjoy a peek into my process for creating a prop.
|Cutting out these 10 pieces on the scroll saw was a bit unnerving. Sand until smooth.|
|Wood glue is my friend for all my wood pieces.|
|Two coats of Liquitex acrylic paint.|
|Adding some designs to the piece. Some stenciling and freehand painting.|
|A little too 'new' looking. Time for some age.|
|Sanding, staining, glazing until I'm satisfied this little guy doesn't look so new.|
|Finally complete and ready for Santa!|
