You will need
- A Pencil
- Small rectangular piece of wood (I am using basswood)
- And a Carving Knife (I have a FlexCut Carving knife)
Start by going down about an inch (this will be the hat) and make a horizontal line with your pencil. Then make a second diagonal line going down about a quarter of a inch.
Now make a stop cut on the second line, then make a cut up to that line. (disregard the first line)
Step 4: Making the Nose
Go down a little and make a cut this will be the nose. Cut up to that cut make it as deep as you want the nose to be.
Step 5: The Eyes
Make two cuts one straight out then make one diagonally down.
Step 6: The Mustache/Beard
Draw on the mustache and make a cut down that line. Now make a cut around that to make it look 3D. Now draw on the beard and make a cut. Do that same cutting out around the beard to make it 3D. Now keep removing wood around the beard.
Step 7: The Hat
Make a cut above the first cut to make the rim of the hat. Now cut down to that cut. Start cutting down the hat until you are satisfied with it.
Step 8: Conclusion
I really like how the mini wizards turned out. Hope it worked for you!
