Carving and Painting of Mallard Drake Duck

Editor's Choice - Feb 19, 2015

In July 1st 1982, I purchased a blank wood kit to carve a Mallard Duck. Never finished and it has been in the bookcase for 32 years. Now that I am retired, I decided it was time to give it eyes and texture and paint. Really enjoyed using the wood burning technique to texture the feathers.

Woods: pine

Tools: wood burning tool knives sand paper

Rolando,

I know that carving is time consuming since I’ve watched my husband spend hundreds of hours on a single carving, but 32 years is even more time than I’ve taken to get a project done! LOL

Thanks for showing us all those details, especially that woodburning. Keep up the carving and we’ll hope to see your next project a little sooner!
