Lynn Doughty....a very good carver that spends a lot of time to help carvers like you and me...if you go to his sight ....it was down ..and don't know if its still down but look.......pick out something he has carved and he shows you step by step how he did it.

There's been a few threads on tips for carving faces (which ususally includes the nose). You may want to do a little search to find some.....

OR Look at the "similar threads" linked below on this page. It uses key words from your title to link to other threads with similar words.

Jeff Phares has a good book on that subject. You will only find a more realistic nose on someones face.

Might try looking in a mirror why you are carving a nose. It's right there before you. However,
Jeff Phares has a good book on noses and there are several others who have books on carving faces.

Jan Oegema put an article in WCI teachers corner on a quick and easy nose I think it was a 2006 issue. Shannon or Bob D might be able to get a copy for you.
