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.
Hand Carving the Nouvelle mirror, this is very tedious and fine work.
Hand Carving the Nouvelle mirror...
Carving and shaping the form for the collection. still must make the square, rectangle ones yet. But I thought Id start with the hardest..!
Close up on the detailing..
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...
It's now about working my way around each piece 360* !
I try to make the details and forms all flow together, to be as streamline and visual as possible.
