Default Beginner Looking For A Simple Frog Pattern

I am a beginner carver looking for a simple frog pattern. My wife likes frogs so I figured I would try to make something she enjoys. For that matter any simple beginner patterns would be appreciated.

I don't have anything in the round but I did a relief carving of a frog sitting on a lily pad a couple of years ago. Check out this thread. If you like it PM me with your regular email address and I'll send you what I used as the pattern. It's not fancy but it worked.

Hi all, I too have been searching around for the ever elusive frog pattern tha I just might be able to carve. I am new to carving and (don't laugh), carved a mushroom for the wife (who likes mushrooms and frogs ... more the frogs though). So if anybody can help me with frog patterns then feel free to help out.

Sometimes you have to adapt a pattern to meet your needs. With this in mine you might try the following link... Slides - WJ

It's a collection of patterns for Boy Scout slides from old Boy's Life magazines but there is a pattern for a Hungry Frog slide included. I've already blown the pattern up, doubling it in size, and cut myself out two blanks leaving out the hole but I haven't had a chance yet to carve it. See if it will work for you.

I did some frogs a few months ago. I looked up frogs on the web and found some garden pieces that worked. I then copied the picture, resized it to what I needed, and cut it out after printing. I use the cut outs as templates. It works for almost anything I want.

When I needed a frog pattern, I went to the dollar store and bought a little frog that looked like what I wanted to carve. Makes life real simple. All the proportioning and thinking is already done for you.
