Book: Whittling Little Folk
With just one carving knife and two simple patterns, you can carve a community of charming caricatures, including a policeman, hard-hat road worker, monk, baker, professor, football player, and more. Patterns for these delightful folks are included in Whittling Little Folk, written by Harley Refsal, the master of the Scandinavian flat-plane carving style.
Each pattern has four perspectives—the front, back, and sides—for a complete 360-degree view of the character. Refsal provides step-by-step instructions and photos for carving and painting each little whittle.
While the projects are easy to complete and won't take up too much time, they don't lack personality. With their rosy cheeks, toothy smiles, humorous outfits, and clever names, the little whittles are a caricature carver's dream come true!
Whittling Little Folk is the perfect book whether you're a beginner or an experienced carver. With its clear instructions, helpful photos, and inspiring patterns, you'll be carving your charming little folk in no time!
