Eeylops Owl Emporium...

Some time ago, do you remember sculpting Ollie Owl. Well, when Debie came down and she saw Diagon Alley, it got her creative juices flowing and she made this little nest of baby Owls to go in Eeylops. I've also made a couple of baby Owls, but they are not finished yet. Thanks for Sharing your tips Debie.
Now, I also have a lovely collection of Owls, from Annie Willis of Fine Design, which are wonderfully made and covered in real feathers. But I'm going to need quite a few Owls to fill Eeylops, so I'm going to start making a few myself to fill the rafters..
You can see my attempts in the bottom two pictures. Please remember these are a work in progress. (If you click on the pictures they will pop up bigger, please excuse the poor quality, but I was in a rush)..
I'm making steady progress, but its taking me quite a time with swollen hands, but all in all I'm having a Hoot...LOL
I've been studying Owl pictures on the internet, for days. To give you some idea of how big they are, the smallest one at the back of the picture is approx 2cm.

What a fabulous collection of owls! I love Annie's work (I still need to contact her for mine).

Yours will be fabulous when they are finished! I wish I could sculpt some myself, but I know they would come looking like some creepy prehistoric fiend! lol
