Ok not trying to be smart but, how do you carve out time for so much carving????? When do you carve and how long to you usually do this each day?

Oh Elin, you did such an amazing job on this one. The ink/paper choices are impeccable!

Elin said...

Thanks everyone. The yellow paper was my husband's suggestion (and a good one).

Stephanie - I've been carving in the morning when I first get up so far. The time it takes is pretty inconsistent. The Obama one took ten minutes tops (including the drawing) but the seaweed took what seemed like a lifetime! It depends on the subject. And the material too - some is harder to carve than others.
