Synopsis

Starting with commercially available wooden eggs, Mary Finn shows how to transform them into all kinds of delightful characters, each with a unique personality. Using detailed, step by step instructions and color photography, this book shows how to create both big headed and regularly proportioned egg people, carve whole figures or partial figures, and add legs or go without. A list of ten basic steps is applied to each of four projects: a Santa carving, a man in a business suit, a butterfly-catching lady, and an ice hockey player. You will learn how to orient the egg, establish the basic outline, complete details such as eyes, hair, and clothing, and paint the finished project. Carving egg people is the ideal project for people with limited access to saws or other large equipment as well as for those who want an enjoyable take-along carving project.
