Three more Egg Noggins carved out of basswood hen eggs are examples of face carving.  These are another example of Whittle-Carving using only a knife to carve facial features. Each is finished with a monochrome coloring of Raw Sienna artist oil paint and Boiled Linseed Oil mixed together.  A monochrome finish amplifies the carving texture making the texture the color.

The four views of each noggin will be followed by close up views a points of interest in each noggins.  To see previous postings on Egg Noggins go to “Blog Index Map”  under Main Menu  – scroll down to “Carving Projects”  to find postings with “Egg Noggins”  in title.
