African Masai Shield

End Oct. 2009

Time to Carve: 1 hours
Finishing: 2.5 hours

A two part slide, the African Masai Shield was easy to make and challenging to paint. The shield was made with a scrap piece of basswood and the spear is some left over 1/8th wooden dowel with a brass point. The painting took some time since I was practicing on paper first to get each part of the detail right before trying it on the carving. Finished with some poly on each part of the slide
