Woke up to a blizzard today, and then 45 minutes later it was clear and calm... This afternoon the winds picked up and when you have snowfall in the temperatures in the teens, it makes for a lot of drifting snow. Good day to do research. I want to put a decorative border on the Viking's base. So spending this next to the last day or 2017 researching border carvings by Vikings. This is my last Video of 2017... See you all in 2018. Man I can't believe I've lived this long.. I was born in 1945.. I couldn't even imagine getting to the year 2000.. let alone 18 years into this century..

Decided to share a full video today of myself working on the raised metal dome in the center of the shield, called a Boss. Then redid a armband, and worked on the robe. Just want to wish all my friends and followers a very Merry Christmas..

Great day for staying indoors. Snowing and blowing outside, with a windchill of 0 degrees Fahrenheit outside. I talk about the LuminAID Emergency Light.. A great solar powered light you can use for Power Outages, camping, or working on your car's engine. I then Talk about my Viking clay.. sharing the progress so far and what I'm going to work on today.

Thought I'd take this opportunity to show you a great idea for a Christmas or New Year's gift for yourself or a loved one. My Instructional DVDs will be mailed out as soon as I get an order. I will include High Quality Prints of my Sketches with each order till I run out of them. I have about 50 sketches all together.. Now I seldom if ever sketch or draw.. so this is a unique opportunity. I have a link in my Video Description, below this video, that takes you to a page where I have a video review of each of my 9 Instructional DVDs. I can't guarantee you'll get them before Christmas.. but I sure can before New Years for now. So get your orders in...

Detailing again today. Added a Braided Headband, a Necklace, added to his beard, as well as finished up the Hilt of the Sword. I also announced a special gift to those who purchase my Instructional DVDs from now till I run out of them... I printed up different sketches I made a few years ago to sell at an art show in Great Falls Montana. I have probably 50 of them.. differing in subject matter. Just an incentive to buy my DVDs...

Detailing again today. Added two belts. One that wrapped around his waist, and a belt over that one that holds his Sheathed Sword. I'm going to rework the beard a little and trying to decide on arm bands or not and a Viking design on the base. I still have a couple of weeks of detailing to do before I start creating the Instructional DVD on "Creating a Northmen/Viking"

Changed the positioning of the Battle Axe. I believe the new position actually improves the design and flow of the figure of the Viking. Started the hand holding the Battle Axe, and added the beginnings of a leather wrist wrap. Then I took a brush and with lighter fluid, started to smooth the clay, of the face and the figure.

Nearly finished the Viking's Shield today. Added Runes to the shield/s front side. Nearly finished the Battle Axe and adding the placement of the sword. Lots of working the clay yet. Still rough, but it's getting close to being finished.

Really short video today.. Had a 5 hour power outage right in the middle of me working on the Viking. Hard to sculpt when you haven't light to work with.. 28 degrees outside so couldn't work on my porch... There will be much more tomorrow...
