Painted Turtle

Early Jan. 2010

Time to carve:1.5 hours
Finishing: 2 hours

An interesting slide to do because it is the underside of the painted turtle and not the top that is being displayed. In fact, I was asked by my wife why I was doing the underside and my son was quick to answer the question. (He sees a couple of painted turtles at the museum he works in every week.) What I found fascinating while researching how I should paint the side I discovered that the only certainty is that no two painted turtles have the same pattern. Painted with craft paints and finished with a couple of coats of poly.
