If we had more active posters we could do a santa swap, nothing big, it would be nice to get a feel of how every one works with their clay and armatures. We were always doing swaps in Ooak guild, but sometimes a few people wouldn't follow through. It was a bunch of fun.

Darel, that hillbilly is great. I've seen a lot of carved hillbillies but never one with a peg leg. For future reference, however, I have two words for you: super glue. I've used it extensively on my lovespoons and when I get a bit rambunctious with my Santas. I'm working on a limited edition set of 5 miniature Santas now. I've finished the first 5 figures, and I broke at least one hand off of each one. Nice thing about super glue is that it strengthens the wood it's applied to. So if you're working on a thin piece, like a staff, you can soak it in super glue making it much less likely to break. The carver's secret weapon.

Bob,

Thank you so much for the compliment. I have seen your web page, so any compliment coming from you is well apricicated.
I never thought of super glue. It sure makes alot of sinse. Right now I am spending my time on clay, but I hope to spend more time in the future working with wood. It is a lot of fun.

And yes Paula, NEVER under estimate the uses of silver duct tape!!!!!

Thanks

Darel
