    My first two-sided carve worked out very well. By far my longest (time wise) carve too at a little over 9 hours. The wood is poplar.

    It sanded out very nicely. I'm happy with it.

    That is quite a design. I would say you are on your way to making something beautiful and unique. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Here it is sanded. After sanding, I masked off the uncarved part of the body and sprayed the carved portion with 4 coats of gold.
    Right now I've masked off the gold and I'm spraying the rest of the body in black. About 2 coats a day. When I'm happy with the base finish, I'll start spraying gloss clear.
