New Project, part V

After the rough-out is done the real fun begins. This is a series of photos showing the stages of carving the veins on a leaf surface. I use a high-speed air tool for this work.

Start by defining the veins.

Carve away the surface and leave the veins exposed.

Shape the veins, smooth the surface.

Ditto, but go back to Foredom tool now.

Use micromotor tool to do the final shaping and polishing.
