Carving "Cartoon" Figures

Recommended Posts

What process and tools do you use to carve simple cartoon style figures? Are there any how to videos for beginners? I am doing some keychains for work trucks and want to change to doing a carving on one side of the dump truck and the truck number and info on the other. Thinking of doing one shaped like a tire too. Maybe a backhoe or excavator.  I antique and oil them so they look old and worn right off the bat. They are small as well. Probably 2"x1" I want to basically add the outline of the bed, window and tires.

I’d say a swivel knife and a couple of bevelers would do the trick. Cut the lines with the swivel knife and then bevel the side of the line that should look like it’s farther from the viewer.
