08 Joint Design Nº 458
I am starting to work on the toenails of the left carving wax foot. Two of the things that I am trying to keep in mind while I am working are: make curved toenails, not flat ones, and avoid any toenail undercuts. I made a little diagram for myself, as a reminder. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I am using one of my stainless steel carving tools. I spent some time filing the edges of the tool, to get it sharper and more even, then I sanded where I had filed with some 220-grit sandpaper. Now the tool carves where I want it to carve, instead of somewhere along a blunt edge.
