Diamondback Rattlesnake Walking Stick #35

On this stick I was asked to carve this knurled hand-grip. It is all carved from a single piece of Logdepole Pine.   After carving the snake and all the scales it is hand-painted.  I use three different polyurathane finishes to shine and protect different areas.  For the eyes and rattle I use a high gloss, for the shaft of the stick I use a satin finish and for the snake I use  a flat finish.
