I did not set the front. The pot is still half a tree. Pine must get new canndlle. For now, I am very satisfied with the achievements.
Thank you Will for your comment.
Sorry on my English with googletranslate.

Mario,
Thanks for posting these. Your work looks very natural. I've only begun to learn to carve a little. Thanks for the inspiration.

Just had a great conversation with Mario who was worried (unnecessarily) about his English. The use of the words "tame" and "wild" is deliberate to show the transformation of the deadwood. The house pet dog versus the wolf.

Hey, a bonsai metaphor - I love it. Especially as it also has an irony in that I see the "tame" side being before the carving and the "wild" as the after. He hasn't tamed the tree - he has restored it to the wild. Brilliant!

Great work, Mario.

Mario nice work. Your carving is great but so is your coloration technique. Not to long along there was a discussion about how to reproduce the old silvery - white color of ancient deadwood., You have definitely achieved that. Care to tell us your technique?

Excellent carving, I agree. As for the color, LS, Indian Ink and charcoal?

It is a wonderful colour is'nt it. I have got similar colouration by, first carving or tearing, then burning with a little gas torch, wire brushing and then watered down lime sulphur.

After the initial Lime Sulfur application has dried, then a little soot and or Indian ink mixture is applied, then wiped off, let dry and then LS is applied to the raised areas as highlights? or something like that?

We all have our techniques. I actually add acrylic paint to mine. I was inquiring about Mario;s as the results look very good immediately after carving.

Excellent work, Mario!

Pics 9, 10 & 11 remind me of a Hydra or Cerberus, the 3-headed dog of Greek mythology (or Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone, if you're that way inclined!)

Either way, I think you should be careful of putting your hands too close to this tree from now on, just in case!

Rob,
Not having done this before myself but having heard and read about such techniques I was only suggesting a possible technique that Mario may have used.......that's why my sentences had ??? marks......... so that Mario could offer his answer to my question.
Cheers G.

I burned tree, shower water, and then applied limesulphur.
The second day I took off carbon wire brush and then applied limesulphur. Coal is used as the school shower. I hope you understand!
Thank you for your comment !

I never thought of Hydra! Great observation, thanks to the possible name of Pinus. I worked all hand tools and the work I was already injured from a blood ... now that you say, even more dangerous! Wink

It looks to me like a two or three dragons or dragon heads emerging out of a wave!
Very nice! I'm proud that you have done so nice and interesting deadwood!
