Another Step Closer...
He just wanted to look out the window at the birds in the bird feeder. That's like TV for cats.
I put some glass eyes in his sockets and made his feet smaller.
The arms are sculpted, but not fastened all the way on yet. I need to do some more work on them and position them still.
Looks awful now, but after he is baked, it will do what it is supposed to do.
The wire is simply some craft wire and will stay the way that I pose it. The end will be buried in his body after he is baked. The hole will go in the body before I bake him.
I plan to fill in anything that is not the way I want it with the air drying clay. That way it will all look the same and smooth.
So far, I am pleased with the way things are going. Keep your fingers, eyes and toes crossed for me... I may need it before I am finished!
Back to work now.
See you tomorrow.
