Carving on the way..!

TIP: Because the MDF board is very thin and fine, its likely that the edges or tips will break while your working on the frame. I advise you to paint the tips with PVA diluted with a little water. This will strengthen up the corners and they wont break off or damage as quickly..! Seriously it will help you.

Once this side is done, I will start on the opposite / flip side - it's the closest and means the forms will remain as perfect to each other as possible. One will influence the other...

So now its time to carve out where the pencil lines are to add depth to the moulds and give them more relief in the design. I try to carve as close to the lines as possible to minimize sanding later on when they are glued on.

once Im happy Im close enough I will start work on the other parts of the mould. I like to leave just a little on, so I can sand and make it a little "bulbous" and roundy.

Chisel away the excess on each piece.

With the mould laid over, I can chisel away the excess wood back to the line, this makes sanding and forming it easier. This is one of the first tasks I do when starting work on each moulding and detailed piece...

Tools of the trade. Only after I am happy and confident that the carvings are good enough and uniform to the mould will I glue them into place. I will then finally sand them to completion. It's a long process and each detail will be unique in it's own right.

The carving begins.The plastic resin moulds will be placed on now and hand carved around them. In due course they will be rasped, filed and sanded to help create the perfect shape and form.
