Example text

I applied the least amount possible to hold the parts together. 25) Now put the sanding shim in place, and you'll be ready to sand the body. Sand the body part down to give the head and feet more dimension. When sanding this section do not sand so much that the shim for the raised areas will be exposed (do not sand lower than 1/8"). 26), then slightly rounded it toward the sides. 27) Af ter sanding, remove the sanding shim and put the parts back in place. Mark where the body parts touch the feet, head and ear sections.

Be sure to watch out for your pencil line showing the thickness of the face. You do not want to sand the head dress below the face. Af ter the head dress is shaped, and while it is still taped to the sanding shim, I put some texture on it. I used a Wonder Wheel to make a "dip-like" texture. The Wonder Wheel put s a dip in the wood and slightly burns it at the same time. If you are using hard wood, it will probably burn too much. You could use some carving tools to add texture in this area. Put the head dress back in place and mark where it joins the horn.

Dust off all the pieees, and the project is ready to be finished. STEPFOUR Applying the Finish Af ter all the parts have peen sanded, checked for scratches, de-burred and dusted off, it is time to put a clear finish on the parts. Put the finish on before you glue the pieces down. It is easier to get a nice finish this way. I applied three coats, waiting at least four hours before applying each subsequent coat. I put two coats of clear satin on first, then one final coat of matte Bartley. We prefer a matte or a more satin finish as opposed to a very shiny finish.
