Hers's another whale I made, it is the same shape as the whale I shared the other day HERE . This time I used a very old piece of wood 36" long by a full 11 1/2" wide. I call this a reverse cut out since I use the outside or background of the shape. I don't know if that is the technical term for it, maybe I just made that up?
On the back are separate strips of thin plywood painted in different beachy colours.
