Okay, well, too late now.  One broken tooth and ear later, it'd baked.  My story is it was an epic fight.

Laura, are you reading "le Petit Prince"? So that's a snake, right! Laughing
Interesting to see all your works, it seems you're enjoying a lot. Very Happy
Oh, let me guess, your smilodon is a walrus, am I guessing? flower

It's been ages, since I read it, Roger. Smile

I had gotten some Sculpey(original), mostly to see what it was like. It reminds me of playdough. I had fun, but I'm glad you're finding my land walrus interesting :)

Though I think I'm done. I just can't get the faces right. And my patience lasts 12 hours, after which I give up.

12 hours? Shocked Please don't give up. Just make a little, then inthe other day another small part and like that. Try a Guinea pig or so but just don't give up. Very Happy

Oh, I mean, I give up on that particular one. I'm trying a wombat, for a friend, maybe, if I get it right.

Thanks to Zelvik who's own wombat may have inspired, and helped me get past the mental block where I was getting the head completely wrong. Yours was indeed much better, but hey, my friend's good at thinking of the thought that counts. Very Happy  And much better at painting. If I ever remember to send it to her. Sending things is not my strong point.

Thanks Jonas, Ana. No intentions of painting myself. Though I suspect my friend might when I finally send it to her eons from now.

Oh Laura! Very Happy I am glad you're working in a wombat, it is looking great and it is also an excelent idea. I'd love to see it painted by you or by your friend. Very Happy

Aww, Thanks Roger. I'll let you know if she ever paints it. Assuming it gets there without incident. :)

So, as I'm trying to respect people's privacy on the internet. Very Happy
My cousin posted a picture of her and her new horse.

After many failed attempts, I sketched the idea of what it looked like:


Pretty sure that's as far as I'm getting.  But I figured it was fun enough to try to mess with a little bit :



Ah well, I'm pretty sure I'm done with it since horses aren't my thing, but thought it might amuse you. Very Happy

P.s. Sorry the pictures are so blurry.

You did very nice job with the head! So you won't paint it? Very Happy

I may have put the paper up to the screen and attempted to trace it before I succeeded   lol!  Laughing

Thanks.  I'd have to bake it first. And I don't have paints. Because I have a little one who likes eating things that go unattended for any length... A great explorer who is bound to find some unique food, someday. flower

But if I ever consider shipping things to Finland, I'll let you know. santa  Don't hold your breath. I still haven't sent my sisters birthday presents. And they live in the States.  And that was a few months ago.

haha Laughing

That sounds very good just if you don't send us snow. Or the Santa Claus. Razz

Ps. Just like me. Don't worry -.*

Nope, I'll leave the Santa Clauses in their Shopping Malls. Snow? Snow? You're closer to the N. Pole/artic region than I! We just hit fall here a few weeks back. There is no snow to send.

Say Scot(t)'s pic of the weird face and figured, huh, wonder if I can make that face.

May or may not work on more... or just disassemble. It's a tossup what'll happen. Almost out of clay though, so that's a factor too.

Okay, I give up. Plus my Malayan tapir wandered off somewhere and it just wasn't as much fun without them talking about stuff.=. So I baked it. Because now I don't have to deal with it ever again. Mwahaha!

Guess I forgot to include that one.
In the meantime, the son has managed to carefully drop it and part of an ear is missing. The rest of the ear and one toe are glued on. See, my models are fleeting :)
