They're Multiplying

Sculpting with this new (gooey) polymer clay is a bit madding. Even if you leach it out on paper over night. it is easier to add a bit of clay to the piece and bake for a few minutes. Other wise you mess up what you just finished sculpting in a different area. I refine the clay with an X acto # 11 blade and sand paper. There is strong wire in the all the limbs and ears and body. He still needs some work before he gets his coat.

Wild Rabbit

I wanted to make a wild rabbit. I should have remembered how this Alpaca heather brown mix photographed.. Despite the fact that this fiber is as soft as anything I have ever used, it looks like steel wool in photos. I suppose that is because you see the individual hairs. That doesn't happen when every fiber is the same color. In person though, this color Alpaca  looks just right for this sort of rabbit. He can sit on the tip of my finger.
He looks pretty cute sitting next to the geese. Though I am sure you are sick of seeing those. So am I!!!

Still alot of sculpting to do in this photo. It helps me to see what needs more work when I take pictures. Here his eyes were too big.

eBay Auction...Starting the bidding at TEN PENNIES

Just for fun I have decided to list the latest goose I made for ten cents (USDA) It is a huge risk but it will be fun to watch.

Keep your fingers crossed for me. :-)

They Are Flying Away!

These are new ones I made this week. One is on his way to England and another one is off to Australia.
I have ordered feathers again to make a few more. The next ones will be up for auction on eBay. I will post a link when I have a goose listed.
