Carving the Female Face
Carving the Female FaceHow to Carve Pretty Faces in Wood by Wally Lueth.
Helps keep carvers from creating sculptures of female faces that look like men. Carving the female face in wood presents a difficult challenge for woodcarvers-their carved women too often looking like men in dresses. Starting with photos of women's faces, this guide offers an anatomy lesson on the bone and muscle structure of the female face, including information on the facial features of women of various ethnicity, and then provides detailed instructions on how these delicate features can be convincingly carved. Ten ready-to-use patterns-with front and profile views-are included.
