Leaf Carving Tutorial

Recommended Posts

Here is a brief picture tutorial I did for a friend about how to bevel and lift carved leaves.

Steps:

1.  Cut

2. swivel bevel

3.  Steep checkered bevel

4. Checkered matting and lift.  I use pro lifters.

5. Background

6. Enhance lifts with modeling spoon

7. Make certain lifts flow into non-lifted parts

8. Using a modeling spoon, I begin creating the negative impressions and smoothing out the lines from the craftaid.

 

If you'd like me to do the rest of the tutorial, let me know and I'd be happy to oblige. This was only for beveling, so I didn't go into the rest.
