Goldie is my third 5 Minute Bear. It’s made of basswood, about 3 inches tall and 1 inch square. I named it Goldie because I painted it with a very thin gold paint.
This is not (yet?) really a five minute project. It took me about an hour to carve, and another 15 minutes or so to paint. Still, it’s a far cry from the many days it took to create Pounce the cat.
