Default carving a nose study stick

This is a study stick for carving the nose I made from Floyd Rhadigan's video "An introduction to Caricature Carving." Floyd used a 2"x2" basswood stick while I used a 1 1/2"x1 1/2" stick. Floyd used the following gouges 1/2" #9, 3/4" #9 and 3/8" #7 for carving the nose. Since I use a smaller stick, I also used smaller gouges. His video also shows how to carve eyes, mouth and ears. Hope some of you find this useful but the video is far more detailed and very well done.

Very nice. I wanted to print it, but don't have a printer. I usually save the pic and send to a friend to print. But can't with this one. Guess I'll need a printer.

Goodgal, you should be able to save the file to your computer and then send it. If not, let me know and I will email you the file.

Default Carving a nose study stick

That was very useful, Terry. Thanks.

In an earlier thread, I think you gave me a link to Floyd Rhadigan's website to buy his DVD. I purchased it and watched it, but I was a little put off with the size of tools he used. Your study stick was far more useful, because your tools and the wood size are more in keeping with my carving interests.

So thanks for doing it. And thanks also for your thread, We've come a long way. It was very funny. I didn't comment as I was out of town for a couple of days and it slipped away before I got home. But I enjoyed your humor.

The DVD really is very useful. I think he uses the 2x2 stick because it is easier to see for a video but he does mention in the video that you need to choose the right size tools for the carving your doing. I think the basic steps work for both large and small carvings, although when you get down to a 1" stick, it might be a bit more challenging to do eyes his way. Still, some people can pull it off.

You did a good job on the study stick...

I have that DVD and I love it. Floyd is on my list of future teacher.

His Fantasy Characters books are good also. i have both of them.
