Precision Bar Grounding and Backgrounding

Chris Andre

Thursday, 02/28/19, 6:00pm – 9:30pm Granite Mountain Room, Prescott Resort

All skill levels welcome!

Most carvers hear the word “bar grounder” and groan. This class will turn the bar grounder into your friend! Understand how to use this tool without creating “hamburger” in your background and bring a very neat, deep, professional look to your work. We will cover several other backgrounding and carving techniques and have time to practice in class. No specific project will be made, but you’ll have lots of remnants to play on!

Materials to Bring: Basic carving tools: Bevelers, fine-checked matters, swivel knife, strop, bar grounders,  decorative background matters, maul/mallet, and a stamping stone.
