More Stamping.

 After a short break away from the carving tools it was time to get on with the next project. I decided to continue with the idea of using the very small musical instruments, but not to use the carving of the little guitarist. Here are the carved stamps of 2 different hands which will be part of the final piece.
 I wanted a third extended hand but this first attempt above looks awful, there is no indication that fingers are curled under at all. This needs a second attempt!
                                     That's better, a lot more shape and definition is this one.
Something along these lines I think, but this isn't quite right yet. Three of the lower partial hands are all too similarly orientated. Another try tomorrow.
