This is my first attempt at carving. It was carved from a single block of Basswood. The eyes where done with black enamel, lower portion stained grey and the rest stained with golden oak. It was made for my wife who loves owls. Thanks for looking.

Very nice work!

If you want the eyes to look very realistic, put a bit of clear fingernail top coat on each eye. The eyes will then reflect light just like real eyes.
