Long overdue is this new post. I started this plate late afternoon and finished the carving at 9pm. Fun, fast and relaxing. I’ll post the final plate when painted. Will be done by the end of the week because the wedding is Sunday. 😁
My New Year started off with a bang as I opened two caricature carvings from Dick Weber. He willingly offered to carve these for me so I could show you how nicely it carves. I’ve got to paint them and when they are done I’ll be sure to show you! Thanks so much, Dick!
Here’s what Dick had to say about carving EZboard for the first time, “I enjoyed carving this material the only thing that bothered me was the fact that the chips stick to everything, other than that it is a fun product to work with.”
By the way, when you order any two caricature roughouts, you will get Caricature Carving by Gerald Ekern for FREE. ($12.95 value) Offer good while supplies last. Add the book to your shopping cart and enter “freebook” in the coupon code space. The book is great and you’ll see below that EZboard carving results are equally as great!
Jack replied to us with this comment and photos of his work. “Hi Bethany. To be honest, when I ordered the roughouts from you, I thought they were basswood. I need to do a better job of reading what I am ordering. I had never heard of EZ Board but I figured I would give it a try. As it turns out, I really enjoyed carving with it and I will be ordering more in the near future. I have attached photos of my finished carvings.”
First pictures are little boogers carved by Tom B. Carved from 1″ x 1″ x 1.5″, 15# light green EZboard, Tom carves these and gives them away at carving shows he attends. When carved from EZboard I’m sure he can give away more than those carved from basswood. Thanks Tom!
The 1’x 2’ sign was carved by Rick L from 20# EZboard. Rick used Rustoleum 2x ivory satin paint as a base and then Mahogany minwax gel stain . “I was trying to make it look like wood so it would be a little uneven. I used epoxy on the back to glue the hangers on as you suggested.” Great carving, Rick!
