Not working from anything special, I did a rough sketch of the barn just to get my image where I wanted it on the palm of the antler and then just "draw" directly on the antler from there.What a great carving! I had to search to find out what a Mail Pouch Barn was.
I can see some sketchings on the uncarved/partially-carved antler. Are you working from a painting/picture/sketch?
Very nice.Always emjoyed carving myself but could not spend much time at it since I made a living at woodworking and it was not profitable in this area.Maybe one of these days i'll get back to it.
