I hand-carve each of my wood pieces individually using knives and gouges. The Half-blank ornaments are carved half-round (flat backs) from diagonal-cut pen blanks, and the Full-blank ornaments are carved full-round from Basswood, Butternut, Mahogany, or Spanish Cedar. They are left unsanded to maintain the carved details of the expression, the hair, and the beard, and are not stained, dyed, or painted except for black and white paint for the eyes to make the faces come alive. Since each piece is carved individually, no two will be identical. The piece you receive may differ slightly from the photos, all measurements are approximate.
Half and Full Pen Blank Santas: Approx 4.5-6" long, .75-1" wide
Short Half Pen Blank Santas: Approx 3-4" long, .75-1" wide
These pieces make fantastic small gifts, Christmas decorations, ornaments, or keychains.
