  • Branches in low relief

    Ok, I'm doing a grape vine in low relief, how ever, I need to know how to round onver the branches(they kinda twist and turn).

    Thanks all.

    CarverDude, when I do vines and branches, I leave them flat topped and square sided until I get the grounding complete. I then take a small, detail knife and begin to cut the edges off, creating an irregular, rounded surface. Remember, branches and vines are not a nice round section. If you want to add more detail, use a woodburner set fairly low and burn lines parallel to the length of the branch or vine. Make them of varying length and spacing, making sure some of them twist over the top of the branch. Practice this on some scrap before you do it on your project. It's not that difficult.

        I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

        Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
