  • Painting Morning Doves

    I need some help with getting a 'good' picture of a mourning dove OR instructions for painting the doves. I am carving a male and female for our daughters wedding and I can't find a good picture orinstructions to get them painted

    Billybob - Anthony Hillman has a book 'Carving Popular Birds' that has a great pattern for a mourning dove. You can contact him at

    or it's usually available on eBay. Also many, many mourning doves are also for sale on eBay so you could see lots of different painting patterns and ideas. I'm no expert but I think male & female doves are identical.

        The color is slightly different for the male & female Mourning Dove. The best reference I have seen for painting them is Ros Daisey's 'Upland Game Bird Carving' book (ISBN 0-88740-349-2). She has instructions for painting either sex in the book as well as some fabulous patterns!

        Good Luck,

            How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

            The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

            Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

            If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

            Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
