Carousel Animal Carving: Patterns & Techniques
People know carousels are magical—and so is this timeless volume, now revised, all in color, and featuring brand-new photography. Guided by the country’s only professional director of a carousel animal carving school, even the first-time carver can capture the charm and nostalgia of an old-fashioned merry-go-round. Frank E. Bud reveals the secrets of carving from photos to reproduce exact replicas of classic creations; shows how to copy designs from original patterns and add authentic looking details; and explains how to create a pattern from ANY illustration. Make the animal miniature or full size: it’s your choice. Specific projects include horses with elaborate saddles, blankets, jewels, and other trappings; a dog; a hare; and a goat.
