Hello once again. I wanted to publish this entry yesterday but I ended up forgetting to do it. Anyhow, as you will be able to check bellow, the project keeps moving forward. I decided to pass all Monday working on it, and it really paid off. The Peliqueiro is almost completely carved, the only thing that is left is the top of the mask.
It's really a challenge to carve so small details with the chisels that I own. I've been extremely careful most of the time, but even like that I ended up removing more wood than what I wished for, and therefore I've been forced to use white glue to fix my mistakes. In spite of that, these mistakes are not easily spotted.
My guess is that I have 2 or 3 more hours of carving left. After that, I will sand down the wood and I will apply an oil or a varnish to the wood.
