St. George Lighthouse Project.

Post by Bob Sauls » Sat Mar 02, 2013 4:25 pm

Over the last 2 months I have been working through this project. I've learned many things on the forums from the likes of Joe Cieslowski, Dave Correll and others too many to mention. Carving, glazing, how to use latex coatings for sign applications came into play on the project. I thank them.

Bob... I like it. The effect and shading really make it pop.
Sure I paint thing for my amusement and then offer them for sale. A brushslinger could whither en die from lack of creativity in this plastic town my horse threw a shoe in. :shock:

Joe,
Bama will be a hoot. If you can bring an extra knife like you've sent, I'd buy it from you there. I will return your videos and bring you a dvd version too.
