Sculpting on Snow Days

Well, at least the ice and snow has lead to a lot of creative productivity! I have been working on an elephant and a cat (may turn out to be a tiger...not sure yet). This is a photo of various parts...hands, feet, mini animals, etc. I hadn't sculpted hands in a few years, so it is good to get back into practicing the process and techniques. In the background, you can see one of my favorite children's books, The Last Elegant Bear by Dennis Kyte. It has the most wonderful illustrations...always a great source of inspiration.
I am hoping that I will be able to adhere all the parts together and do final touch ups this morning and then start painting and embellishing with ribbons and felt pieces.
I will also be working on some super fun, colorful, unique pincushions.
~~Have a great weekend, my SnipPet friends!~~

Your work is fantastic! I adore everything that I've seen on your blog. Thanks for finding me - it lead me to you! Keep up the work with the dolls especially, they are so fascinating. If you lived near me I'd want to take a course on how to create them... that is, if you're willing to let us in on your secrets. :) good luck!
