So I picked up a new hobby recently - carving avocado seeds! As you can see... they are far from good carvings! I'm just muddling along, trying to see what works and what doesn't. There's not many seed carving tutorials out there. If anyone has ever done this, I'd love to hear some tips from you!
As it is, it's hard to control what color the carving ends up. Some have these dark patches here and there and I can't get rid of them no matter how much I sand. Some seeds are pale, some are almost 100% reddish.. @_@;;
I'm just using lino carving tools for these, as I carve the seeds when they're still "wet". I can't get very fine details this way, so if you have any tool recommendation, let me know too!
