Larry Scanlon Bird Carving Demonstration/"BIRD-Watching"!

Larry was a charismatic speaker/demonstrator, on the 21st of July, when he brought in his equipment and several of his 'start-to-finish' projects. He worked on the spot, while fielding questions and popping jokes. A big moment was when he finally placed an Eye into his shore bird was as if it literally came to life. We were all impressed with his skill and the curious techniques employed; the raising of the wood grain by Burning; the uses of Dentist tools (yes, it sounded just like a Dentist's Office!); and his brilliant invention of a mini-roller-paper-pallette!!

Also, be sure to stop by for the "BIRD-Watching" exhibit before it closes on July 24th! You don't want to miss this!
