Process of making wood figures
If you decided to carve a small wood figure and thus refresh your chamber design, you need to start with preparing the material. You have to clean and wash the wood. Don’t hurry to get rid of kindling and bark of the tree, they might be useful while you finish the craft.
During the work you will get a lot of wood shaving. Mix it with varnish until it gets viscid. This mixture is to help you over the holes in the figure, bringing the natural appearance.
To make figures, they use an apple-tree, birch, cypress and nut-tree. More experienced carpenters apply boxwood and Grenadill. These kinds of wood are softer, this is why they are more difficult to work on, but the result is an elegant craft.
If you are bad at woodwork or you don’t want to spend time on this, the wood figures and statuettes are performed by Artur Grigoryan’s studio. The employees will do the work based on your requirements and preference, any size and shape.
To finish the work, varnish or paint should be used. Hard kinds of wood are worked on with oil. The duration of oil work depends on the colour gradation you expect.
By ordering thematic wood figures and statuettes for your chamber you will make yourself and your visitors happy with the expert’s work as well as bring a breath of fresh air into the chamber design.
