Eastern Painted Turtle by Allen Aardsma

$ 350.00

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. 

Made in the Adirondacks
