I am making 2 new examples of SHY. One is already reserved by a collector in the USA. The other one is available for sale.
Complicated body carving from lime wood.
Cavity in back for mechanism
Bodies painted with gesso
Different carved hair styles
Sanding eyes on a hand held Proxxon sander mounted in a vice..
Set of 3 mechanical sanding tools hanging on my work bench.
I have used this set of carving tools for many years. They are very high quality and retain an edge for a long time. I have a second identical set for if these ever wear out and also a set of bigger ones.
