How to care for your wood carvings
You found a bear that captured your heart now you are wondering how to look after it.
Rest easy, our bears are easy to look after and are very low maintenance! Here are some care tips & tricks to keep your carvings looking new.
First of all, because Danny carves out of a portion of a large cedar log, it is able to dry evenly before we put the finish on. This generally alleviates any large cracks or splits in our bears. Since the medium is wood, the bears can develop small cracks which is called “checking”. This is normal with wood. We use a high quality Sikkens Door and Window finish which will protect the wood for a very long time. If your bear starts to look a little dry, you can touch it up with more Sikkens to that area or you can do the whole bear.
