Open Ocean Manta Ray
This Open Water Manta Ray, based on a scale of 1 inch per foot, represents an animal with a "wing span" (tip-to-tip) of more than 16 feet. It was hand sculpted from basswood, then the surface was chip carved in various patterns to add to its graceful appearance. The finish consists of multiple coats of semi-transparent acrylic paints, layered over one another to provide shading.
Finally, two coats of clear acrylic paint were applied.
The base is a slice of "live edge" Cherry Burl, with a
finger-rubbed boiled linseed oil finish followed by several
coats of lacquer and then hard wax.
