I was demonstrating making clay models to the carving club last year and came up with this little face. She had such a winsome look, that I had to finish her out and she turned into this witch. But it has taken a while to get her even cut out on the band saw! I finally completed her this weekend and she turned out pretty good. I especially like her face and the details on the hand. She might make a good rough out, since you could carve the hands in different positions or holding different things, and she could probably be easily converted to a hillbilly, wizard, or cowboy. My original idea was to have her holding a frog behind her back for the “trick”, but I couldn’t get it to look right. The club/bat should be more persuasive for reluctant contributors! Thanks for looking!
