2020 Ornaments (a few more)

Groupings of my 2020 Ornaments. Hollow globes (Maple or Cherry) with Holly icicles or hangers & caps. Approx. size ranges from 2¼ - 2½”ø x 6½ - 7” tall.

All are a little different (shape, design, or colors) but use the same techniques. Textured and carved, airbrushed and colored with acrylic & metallic paints
@Peter White
Thanks, Peter. I try to aim for approximately 1/4" (6mm) around the middle and 3/16" (4.5mm) near the top and bottom....but in reality it usually is less. The carved dimples are deeper near the center and shallower on the extremities - so I hope not to carve through. :( These are hollowed out in two parts and all drilled holes for the cap(s) tenons are 1/4".
