Two Rail Sweep a tree

Postby garymkrieg » Mon Jun 18, 2018 11:24 pm

I have a 3d carving that has a tree that is cut to a depth of over 1/2". Rather than having straight cut on the sides it would be great is I could give it a more rounded profile using the two rail sweep. Unfortunately, I'm not even sure where to start with such an irregularly shaped item. Any ideas, attached is a file that will show you what it looks like. The tree in question is to the left, the bottom is beach and can be ignored.

Have you tried sculpting? Maybe adding a little base and draft. Then smoothing. The original pic is very low resolution so the finished quality will probably not be very good.
