Eastern Painted Turtle by Allen Aardsma
Allen Aardsma is a local Adirondack artist who specializes in realistic pocket knife carvings.
This realistic basswood carving of an Eastern Painted Turtle was made entirely by hand with a Buck 307 jackknife and a Warren knife. It was meticulously hand-painted, using ordinary paint brushes and acrylic paint, to closely replicate the beautiful pattern on an Eastern Painted Turtle. A coat of spray fixative was applied to seal the surface of the carving in order to keep dust and moisture out.
Given the handmade nature of this product, each carving may vary slightly from the one pictured.
