I thought the boot was impressive, but this, this is just superb! I'm sure you'd agree but there is something just so fascinating, almost hypnotic, about the lines and shape of a high heeled shoe. You've captured it sooo well in this carving. Well done Sir!

by the by, i know a way you could finish it without even touching the piece and make it really sharpen

Thanks for the kind words. I sold it like this with no finish.
By the way do you mean "torch" it? ;)

lolwut XD
I was thinking ammonia fumigation.
Makes it darker and adds beautiful contrast to wood.
Don't know what it'd do to pine tho

I would look up a guide if i were you, but here are the steps in a nutshell:
1: get an air-tight plastic container that can hold the project (a detergent bucket will work, hell even a plastic food container if it's small enough)
2: place the project in container and pour liquid ammonia into an open container and put the container inside the larger plastic container with the project inside. (use your best judgment with how much you wanna put in (a bowl of amonia would be fine for a laundry detergent bucket sized project))
3: seal quickly and let sit anywhere from a couple hours to a full day. (if you are going to be fumigating for a long time, you may want to replace the ammonia every 12 hours or so

4: wear some standard safety precautions. (amonia IS amonia)

fantastic, maybe colouring the base would make the shoe more in focus?

Yes, now I can agree with you but this one is already sold.
How is the boot now? Have you managed to find a solution for the back lighting? ;)

I wish I could have better tools to work more on details, but inside and outside. At first I was thinking about separating the shoe from its base but I guess it will break so It' will stay this way for now.
Thanks for your comment. ;)

If it is thin, it sure can break, one little bump and snatch. Believe me I speak out of experience, can't post an image of the thing I'm mentioning now. But it was a wooden board with leaves (wich my uncle had cut out for me with his machine, he makes advertisingboards and letters for fabrics, shops and so on) and some parts on the edges were realy thin. Someone at school don't know who, tought it was fun to touch the board and some leaves got broken of. So when I got back I saw some peaces laying around in the classroom. Anyway got it glued together again but two weeks after the presentation they broke of again. So if you can please keep it at it's base ;).

Some people, and I don't mean only kids, have this urge to damage things, go figure.
My kid, 3 years old, was holding the shoe in one hand and a screwdriver on the other. "I'll fix it, I'll fix it" and I was like: "put it down... slooooowly..." it wouldn't take him much to break the heel ;)
I want to make a smaller one soon :D
Thanks for your input.
