Beginning with a pre-shaped blank to simplify the roughing out process, techniques used in both high speed texturing and wood burning are shown. These techniques achieve eye-catching, realistic features and great detail. Instructions are also provided for creating feet with a realistic appearance complementing the habitat base. Following the carving stage, instructions are provided for airbrushing and brush painting techniques necessary to complete the screech owl and bring the carving to life. Additionally, the pattern is provided, along with detailed reference photographs of a live screech owl. This book will be a vital reference guide for any wood carvers library.
