Soap carving is a fantastic confidence-builder for novice wood carvers, and a challenge for carving veterans who would like to explore a new medium. This fascinating book takes carvers to an advanced level, showing methods of making multiple-bar soap carvings of selected North American mammals. Beautiful color photographs and the text move step-by-step through the creation of eight animals: a bear and cub, wolf, cougar, prairie dog, harp seal, killer whale, and otter. Art, natural history, and environmental issues are integrated into the instructions to produce a super learning experience. Expert wildlife carver Lila Gilmer also makes an appearance to contribute her different approach to realistic soap carvings.
