2 hour DVD Course- $39.00
As any experienced carver will tell you it all starts with the
pattern. In this course I show you ALL aspects of creating your
own accurate patterns including using computer software to compensate
and edit your patterns to adjust for animation in your carving.
All very important pieces to the puzzle if you plan to branch out and
carve fish from your own patterns.
I also show you how to enlarge patterns to jumbo fish, change side and
top profiles as well as using my homemade animation compensation tool
that corrects any pattern length problems due to animation instantly
eliminating any guesswork.
Note: portions of Disk 2 are included in
Wood Selection as it relates to layout.
