“A favorite whittled whimsical wonder is the fish decoy,
Using simple shapes, a few carved accents and details,
a bit of added wood or copper for fins, and one knife we
will carve a folk art vintage fishing lure and learn how
you can expand on the simple one-knife techniques to
create your own unique folk art fish. Every tool and
supply that we will be using is readily available at your
local arts and crafts store – you may have many of them
already at hand.”
60 pages of instructions, patterns, and ideas included are 20 small decoys patterns with fin variations, 4 long minnow decoy patterns, and 21 large full-sized decoy patterns accompanied by full-colored photos of the carved samples.
