There are many options to this design so you can add a flag or even a banner. In addition to the Butternut, Jim will have some basswood roughouts for those that want to paint, stain, burn, goldleaf or otherwise emblesish the eagle itself. In this case you will need your own paint,stain,goldleaf, or whatever. The Eagle roughout in Butternut is $25, Basswood $20. Jim will have available MinWax natural stain for a finish on the Butternut and acrylics for flag colors on the eagle. Butternut Eagle can be waxed or sprayed with a Deft like product when you get it home. Hand tools are anticpated, mostly gouges.
At Roundups, this is one day class, although occassionally, some students want to come back for a second day. You can come back as manny days as you want to finish it and/or paint the flag and oil/wax the basic bird. In one day you will have substancially complete all or most of the detail so you can move on to another class if you wish to.
This is not step by step so start when ever you want during the day. It is anticipated that you can substantially complete it in one day as you will be working from a roughout and being stylized there is no burning of the feathers. While seldom ever completely finished, you will have learned all the techniques required to finish it at home.
Classes for your local club are best scheduled for 2 days to ensure the carving is completed and to reduce the pace of working the eagle.
