Welcome to Central Flyway Decoy Collectors' and Carvers' Club (CFDCC)! At last count we are 43 strong and growing. The club is dedicated to the art of the hand carved bird. During our meetings, we share information, discuss member's projects, have a short educational program, and just enjoy the camaraderie of artists who are passionate about bird carving.
In the last few months we sure have had a lot of temperature swings from hot to cold. It is a great time for carving when it's cold and snowing outside. Hopefully you have been able to get some carving in either just for yourself or for one of the carving shows coming up.
In our past meetings we talked about doing some programs by the members on different carving and painting techniques. Bill and Norm did some great painting techniques last year which was very informative. Norm will be doing a program on the airbrush in March. If anyone would like to do a short program please contact me. It could be on burning-stoning-setting eyes-feather grouping-painting etc. We all have our ways of creating birds of art. We have a great resource to learn from in our members.
I also thought it would be fun to do a before and after, we see the great birds that are being carved. I think it would be fun to have a couple of carvers now and then bring some of their first carvings and talk about how they got into carving. Just a thought. Happy Carving
