Follow along with master carver Jeffrey Moore to create a dramatic and lifelike representation of the striking blue wing teal drake. Jeff starts with a preshaped, duplicated wooden bird to simplify the rough carving process, then demonstrates the use of burning and high speed texturing equipment to achieve wonderful carving detail and realistic features. Once the carving is completed, the book takes the reader through each aspect of the airbrushing and brush painting steps needed to complete the teal's body, tail, head, and outstretched wing. In addition, Jeff demonstrates how to create realistic-looking sand and water for the accompanying habitat base. Throughout, detailed instructions accompany the full color photographs. This is a carving project you will treasure for many years to come.
