Details: Learn from the master of flat-plane figure carving! 50 patterns to create eye-catching caricatures using just one knife Flat-plane techniques from master of the art, author Harley Refsal Step-by-step instructions for carving and painting, plus tips and basics Ready-to-use patterns with both front and side views Join internationally recognized woodcarver Harley Refsal as he shows you how to carve charming caricatures in the traditional flat-plane style! Once you try it, you'll be hooked by this distinctive style of figure carving, in which large flat areas called "planes" are deliberately left intact. There's no smoothing, rounding, sculpting, or sanding here. Each simple finished piece merely implies detail—and says more by carving less. Discover how to carve and paint humorous folksy characters like a Troll King and Queen, Java John, and Mocha Mary, with step-by-step photos and detailed instructions. Then, Carving Flat-Plane Style Caricatures presents more than 50 imaginative figure patterns for you to carve on your own—from lumberjacks and golfers to trolls, elf-like caricatures, horses, roosters, holiday ornaments, and more. Front and side-view patterns show you how to achieve success with just one knife and a few simple, well-placed cuts. One of the world's most notable folk artists, author Harley Refsal has been decorated by the King of Norway for his pioneering contributions to Norwegian folk art, particularly flat-plane figure carving. A Professor Emeritus of Scandinavian Folk Art, he shares his expertise with thousands of carvers in courses and presentations across North America. Harley was featured in a PBS Craft in America episode, appeared as guest woodcarver on Prairie Home Companion, and was honored as Woodcarver of the Year by Woodcarving Illustrated magazine. In this book, Harley shows you how to carve and paint engaging folk-art caricatures in the classic Scandinavian style. With more than 50 patterns to try inside Carving Flat-Plane Style Caricatures, you'll be delighted with the way these figures come to life with engaging, folk-art personalities! "Harley is the approachable, down-to-earth, and beloved woodcarving instructor" —Steve Johnson, Executive Director, Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum
