Ken Blomquist takes readers through all the steps necessary to successfully carve and finish a Scandinavian Santa, using step-by-step instructions, 258 beautiful full color photos, and detailed patterns. This figure comes with a rucksack full of traditionally wrapped gifts and a walking staff to steady him during his annual trek. Following these clear instructions, you can also create a scenic, snow-covered setting, complete with a fir tree for your figure.
The text includes a list of tools and paints required to complete the project, helpful suggestions useful to every carver, instructions for creating unique surface textures, and detailed painting instructions. A colorful gallery provides examples of different finishes and bases for the Scandinavian Santa. This project is an exciting challenge for novice and advanced carvers alike.
Ken Blomquist has been carving for decades. This is his second Santa carving book with Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
