Get Creative with Relief Carving

Discover Dixie’s secrets to using a rotary Micromotor carver to create intricate relief-carved patterns on your work. You don’t need any previous experience with power carving for this class, just a desire to learn new, fun techniques. You will learn how the wood burner can be combined with relief-carved patterns for added fine detail and contrast. See how to add further depth and dimension to the design with color. You will learn the steps to applying multiple layers of color using a dry-brush technique with acrylic paints. This class is sure to unleash your creativity!

Day 1.
Start off with discussion of rotary power carvers. Begin working on sample disc 1. I will demonstrate, and students will practice each step of power relief carving overlapping leaves. This technique will apply to other patterns you may wish to use on the work you bring, later in the class.

Day 2.
Demo and practice, on a couple of sample pieces, a second approach to the relief carving. Demo and practice adding texture with wood burner. Learn application of color with dry brush technique.

Day 3.
Continue working on completing techniques. Begin applying the techniques you learned on the work you brought.

Day 4.
Continue working on pieces you brought.
