Synopsis

Here is a comprehensive look at the carving and painting techniques needed to create a beautiful and lifelike representation of the green-wing teal, one of the most colorful and easily distinguished of ducks. Master carver Jeffrey Moore starts with a preshaped, duplicated bird to simplify the rough carving process, then demonstrates the use of burning and high speed texturing equipment to achieve remarkable carving detail and realism. Detailed instructions accompany each color photograph, with variations in carving the hen and drake clearly shown and explained. Tips for carving the feathers, heads, and primaries, all easily accomplished by the average carver, are provided. Once the carving is completed, the book takes the reader through step by step airbrushing and brush painting techniques needed to complete each of the birds. Colors, painting tips, and finishing steps are all provided to help you achieve an elegant and wonderfully realistic teal.
