I'm Trying To Make An Owl..



I thought to myself last night I'd try and make some Owls for Eeylops. Now I'm fine making food, its my forte, but Owl's well I don't know. I'm no Sculptor. But I giving it a go.. Here's how it looks so far.
Still haven't quite worked out how to attach it's legs, think I'll have to bake the body first then make & attach the legs..
Now don't laugh its a work in progress..

Debbie, if it's not too late, fashion some wire armitures for the feet and poke them in where you want the legs. Then after you bake him, glue them in and work around them. I have done that before with other animals. I don't know why it wouldn't work for owls.

Besos Carmen.

Not laughing at all. You should see the first owl I tried--he looked more like a blob with a vague owl-shape. I think he's looking good.

Looks fab so far. Can't wait to see them finished.
I'm sticking labels on sweet jars.
For some reaon it's all taking far too long.
Have not one single thing complete as yet.
Is there anything you can't make?
Love all your building work in your last posting. All looks so wonderful!
Wish they were mine!

Look at all the detail you have there! I'd say he's a success already.
