Default Blue Crab

Just finished this one. Similar to 'The Lobster' in a previous post.
1" thick basswood but this time I opted to work smarter not harder. Used my DeWalt 611 router w/plunge base to take down the background. Then hand carved everything else. LOTS of hours into this one but fun.

I used my Colwood Detailer woodburner around the edges of the crab to keep the paint from bleeding into the background.

Painted with acrylics thinned with water. Three coats of MinWax spray lacquer for final finish.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you for showing...

and here I thought somebody was cranking up a sea food fest....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I had the bib on, and knife and fork ready......

Ted, a great job and I admire the patience of one required to finish that.
