Our Lady Of Guadalupe

Post by Donmaceloco »

Hi!! First of all, let me introduce myself, My name is Juan Manuel and im from Mexico, although im only 26, i love CNC and whatever it involves, compared to all of you in this forum im in still in diapers, i´ve seen the kind of work you all do, and wow! it amazing!

OK, to the main subject, a while ago i bought "Our Lady Of Guadalupe" model from vectorart3d http://www.vectorart3d.com item #50140 and decided to give it a try, so i carved it, i dont know what the wood´s name in english is, but in spanish its called "Banak"

Here it is...


Thanks for viewing, any advice is welcome.

Juan

Sure Mick!

The paint job was mostly done with acrilic paint, i first sealed the wood with some glue and water LOL, then i applied the paint with Cotton balls (for green and the middle red zones, actually green isnt only green, there is a first layer of dark yellow, one layer of orange, and finally green) for the gold i used a regular paintbrush as well for the rest, the stars are Swarovsky insertions (you can get this in every Nail Supply Store) that i stole from my mom (she has nail art hobby) lol, and basically that was it, Oh! and afterall, a layer of sealant or sealer (excuse my english, i didnt study, i learned watching movies lol)

Hola Juan Manuel ... realmente soy un aprendiz de esto. Entre mi hijo y yo estamos haciendo pininos y muestras por puro pasatiempo. Pero por lo visto el mundo es pequeño, a veces, pues nosotros vivimos en Bugambilias. Si gustas un día podemos vernos para intercambiar experiencias.

Saludos.
Gerardo
