Wood Carving Carving in the field. Grab a board thickness of 30-50 mm. Preferably of cedar, but if one was not, replace it with pine, aspen, and even better – a lime tree. Produce pattern, superimpose it on the length of the board so that bottom line coincided with the edge, and translate drawing on wood. Next we cut off item on top of a contour line "from tail to tail." Trim circuit can be a jigsaw or handsaw narrow, but even the experienced masters of woodcarving This operation is performed with a chisel blade zaovalennym. Crop carry over several passes.
In the early incision strictly vertical line, then make trimming. Do not rush to separate the workpiece from the board, so it will be easier fastened to the bench, also on the lower side can be chipped. Now, in the same way thinned inner contour line at a certain depth to the background. Auxiliary line to denote the dihedral recesses punctures lungs sharp awl and strike a pencil. Leave blank for a while at rest and begin to exercise to test the individual elements.
Carving and concave dihedral recesses. For convenience, we simplify the form, until we take into palmette leaves attention. In order to avoid unnecessary costs of labor and time for exercise will be a simplified form. Boy Scouts has compatible beliefs. It will be convenient Saw this piece jigsaw and glued to the board. Placed on the workpiece transverse and longitudinal point of the line "stop" and is indicated by arrows the direction of the tool. Note the direction of the arrows on the convex curl rocaille (head) and on the opposite concave groove it – they have opposite side. If the excavation they converge, then diverge to curl. The concave recess at this site should be cut "chips in the chip." Dihedral notch cut in the ring. Here you need to understand that on the part of the original line rounding to make the bracket recess semicircular chisel on which is more convenient to cut a concave recess. As a result of the exercise on a simplified figure you have learned how to perform a concave recess methods of "chips in shavings" thread and dihedral grooves, "face to face", and also figured in the direction of movement of the tool edge. Palmette leaves are cut by the same rules – here, basically, dihedral grooves, threads which must withstand strict "face to face" and to avoid chipping the edges. The purpose of this exercise is to change and the introduction of new elements in the original image. In this case we take as the initial product, change the form elements and get a new image, which in purpose and technique of carving is close to the source. A characteristic feature here is the head and curl rocaille lock. On a convex head and make hole recess from continue to cut it with the background conjugate concave recess. The castle is simple in execution, but here the leaves are at different levels. This thread details takes practice. A characteristic feature of the image is that rocaille put inside petal, which is on par with the concave groove. Coinage minted running a background of various forms. You can do cross-head screwdriver or cause strokes tserazikom.
