PSYCHEDELIC HAND CARVED WOOD DUCK COLLABORATION

PSYCHEDELIC HAND CARVED WOOD DUCK COLLABORATION

My husband, Mike, is a woodworker and wood carver.  He enjoys carving ducks in particular.  However, as much as he enjoys carving, he just can’t seem to finish them with color and sealer.  He has two large containers in the garage with unfinished ducks in them.

So I decided to take one of his ducks and put my spin on it (collaboration?).   No traditional realistic painting for me.  I took my Golden Acrylic paints and randomly rubbed it on the wood so that the wood grain show through.

I put some Minwax Early American wood stain on it to knock down the color a bit.  Then I added a couple layers of hand rubbed Minwax Paste Finishing Wax finish on it to give it an even deeper look.

Loving it.

He refers to it as the “psychedelic duck”.

I call it the “hippie duck”.

Next time I’m going to draw flowers all over it.
