This is my version of the Arizona Stick Santa from Woodcarving Illustrated Holiday 2010 magazine Issue 53. The tutorial is by Dave Stetson and he is from 1" x 1" x 3 1/2" basswood painted, varnished and antiqued all with acrylics. I use acrylics because there is no odour and I work in my basement. Boiled linseed oil and sprays are very flammable and have strong odours. Any comments are welcome.
