Default Wolf alert!

Someone had given me this special board of old mahogany that was 1" thick and 20" wide. I elected to do this wolf project using patterns by Charlie Dearing and Sue Mey that were modified for this piece. The insets were inlaid black walnut. The finished project was 20" x 24".

Wow - that is a beautiful piece of work - can't get over the impact of the eyes - they painted in?

Thanks Gloria, Jay, and bcdennis. Yes, the eyes are painted with multiple layers of acrylic paints mixed with gloss medium (very transparent) of various colors. After they are completely dry, I applied a layer of clear epoxy casting material which forms a glossy raised coating that looks like a "cornea"

ADDENDUM: To see step by step instructions for a similar procedure for painting tiger eyes go to the top of this page and CLICK on the ADVANCED Search function, type 3 D tiger eyes in Keyword and Dick Miraglia in Author. Scroll down for instructions Simply use different paint colors for different animals. In the case of wolves, I used blue, green, yellow, and tan.

That is the worst project you have ever done. I'll give you my shipping info and I'll throw it away for you. Wonderful and one of my favorite topics. Keep em coming master.

Sure, Mike, I'll get right on it. Only thing is that I don't remember seeing many "designer firewood" landfills when I was in Montana!

Very nice work, they look awesome. Can't wait for the weather to get warmer, so I can get back to cutting. Guess I need to heat my wood shed.
