Creating Sculpture with Carving!
People have been carving objects out of wood, stone, elephant tusks, and sea shells since the beginning of time. The sculptures that are carved can be quite beautiful and detailed or simple and rough. There is no wrong or right way!
It takes a long time and a lot of practice to become a professional wood carver. A great way to start learning how to carve is by creating carvings using bars of soap. Because soap is soft, inexpensive and easy to cut,it is a wonderful way to begin learning the skills of carving sculpture. Give it a try and see what you can create!
In today's Let's Make It!, create a soap sculpture of your very own!
