Finding A Model!

NO, No, No; not that kind of model!  An item that will serve as a model for your whittling.  I guess I could still be misunderstood.  Oh well, that's alright.  When ever I'm in a gift shop I peruse the small figurines, in search of a suitable subject.  I like to whittle /carve small so I especially look for small items.  These items may be plastic or ceramic.

Here's an example of a recent find, sitting on a penny.  This little frog will be my model.  I'll attempt to whittle one just like him----or her.  The real issue here is that you can find really nice models just about anywhere, if you keep your eyes open.
