Today I Carved Wood For The First Time

Hello friends! It’s day two of my daily design challenge. For today’s medium I chose wood carving. This is something I had never done before but decided to challenge myself. I was unsure of how it would go, but it actually went pretty well! The process reminded me a lot of linocut printmaking.

I started by outlining the general cake slice shape that I have created. Then, I began experimenting with different wood carving techniques and tools to create different lines and textures. Finally, I decided to stain the wood to give it a yummy chocolatey look! 😋

I am quite happy with how it turned out for my first experience with wood carving! It was a lot different than the graphic designing I am used to because once you carve something there’s no going back. I learned a lot from this project and would definitely try it again in the future!
