Don sent this partially completed fish decoy to me to help me check my carving skills. He took the time to complete the written instructions on this decoy on how to finish. With this type of dedication to the decoy beginners it is no wonder that the folk art will stay alive. Thanks Don.
The left side he did
The right side for me to do
The bottom side for me to do
Note the marks that he made for me.
Wow - What a guy.
I will post the final pictures as I finish the project and hope I do not mess it up.
Darrin Kvam is another who helps new carvers this way.
