Whittling a Face -- A continuation!
A previous post titled " WHITTLING A FACE - A REVIEW" was kind of left hanging without being completed. This post is intended to correct that omission. It's kind off quick and "dirty".
Continue to refine the shape of the nose by removing a chip to define the bridge of the nose. Finally, thin the nose up to the bridge of the nose.
It's useful to use a "curling" knife cut from the nose tip to the bridge, to result in a kind of scoop cut.
The goal here is to have the mustache appear to stand out from the face.
There's any number of refinements that can be made at this point.
Texture the beard
Round off the cheeks a bit more
Highlight the eye brows
Sand parts or all of the piece
Scrub the piece with a denture brush and soap and hot water
Finish natural, stain. or paint
