I want to practice my carving skill, then I found a nice picture for practicing. At the beginning, I was doubt that would it be finished? Cause I seldom carving small and complex picture. The funny thing was I carved two lines and it was not smoothly, then I stopped carving for a long while.
I looked at this unfinished stamp, and thought why not just finish it. The most worst will be it looks not like original picture at all. It’s not big deal.
Slowly slowly slowly carved!
I didn’t want to push myself too hard, so it was slowly going. However, when I finished 25% then felt great. It’s challenge. I left the difficult part at the behind and trimmed it.
The difficulty wasn’t how it’s small and complex. It was the transferring picture paled, and I can’t see it clearly. Therefore I carved it by my own sense, and my arm muscle became tense. So the last part looks bad, lines are not straight.
However, I felt good! I improve my skill to another level. Awesome!!
