Give the Little Lady a Big Hand!!!
Walter took pity on both of us and ordered some more from a golf website on the net.
Therefore, there will be a short delay on the mirror and window.
It was in the drawer where the lead tape was supposed to be.
I also found a big chunk of super sculpy in there. Why? I have no idea.
When Tessie saw that, she immediately started raising a fuss. "I need new hands! My old ones are very tired!"
The actual meaning of that sentence is... "I have been very hard on my old hands and they are chipped and cracked... Funny. That's how mine feel after working with her new hands. Chipped and cracked... or is that my brain?
Anyway, I proceeded to make her six new hands... Don't tell her that two of them are for Zar. He is in need of some new ones too.
In the middle photo, they are in the process of being made. I form them over an armature that is removable and the same size as their bones.
I use a toothpick, Exacto knife to form the hands and a #26 tapestry needle to form the nails. I simply press the eye end of the needle into the finger. It makes a perfect nail every time.
They are now out of the oven. They will have to cool a while before Tessie can try them on. Don't worry. She is an old hand at this. It is painless and she will be as good as new, as soon as she can get the ones from the oven on her bones.
Back to keeping her away from the hot hands.
See you tomorrow.
