Temple Plaque Carving

As part of my renewed and continuing effort to beautify the Cabal Fang Temple, yesterday I completed a wooden plaque for the door.

I started by gluing some wood scraps together.  I purposely used different types and thicknesses of wood to give the work more dimension and a sense of age.  Then I did a freehand sketch of the Cabal Fang Emblem and carved it out.

I then painted the entire board gray, let it dry,  sanded it down, painted it black, sanded it down again, and gave it a coat of wood stain and polyurethane.  I’m really pleased with the final effect.
