From Clay to Wood
Steps to Carving Realistic FacesBook - 1995
Nothing is more challenging to the carver than carving a realistic face. To help in the process Terry Kramer begins with modeling clay. With this pliable medium, he leads the reader through the exploration of the planes and features of the face. In a series of exercises, the carver learns the basics about shaping the face in clay, and then transferring that knowledge to wood. This is a basic reference for face carvers. Following Terrys technique will lead to a new level of accomplishment and competence. Fully illustrated with clear photographs and drawings, each step is clearly explained and organized to take the carver to a satisfying result.
