I didn’t get a chance to post over the weekend, because I was taking my Archery Hunter Safety Course. It was interesting enough, but probably didn’t need to be two full days. I took it so that I can hunt both turkeys and deer with a bow, rather than a gun. This means I can hunt in places that are a bit more populated, which is where the turkey and deer population are most out of control.
Last week (and today) was all about sanding, fairing, stretching, stapling. I just have to canvas one more hull tomorrow. It is all faired and ready to go. Then I will move on to doping. Here are some pictures.
I’m also posting some pictures of older work in the portfolio section.
First I pre-stretch the canvas, then stretch it over the hull.
These horses fit up inside the inverted hull, supporting it at specific frames.
I use a torch to burn the nap off of the canvas, to help get a smoother finish.
Another hull waiting for dope.
