Finally I finished him - he's been sitting around unpainted for a while with no legs. But I managed to make some feet for him and painted him yesterday. I did try Phil's technique with the feet, but it didn't work for me. So I made some out of Super Sculpey clay, baked them in the oven and it worked out quite well. He looks better in real life

Another wonderful sculpture Harriet, what a great choice of species as well. If you are looking for species to sculpt a king vulture would be a great choice, they are by far the most colorful of the New World vulture species.

Golly ! How did I miss this fantastic bird Shocked

Harriet, it is a fabulous figuere, - I just don`t know how you can make so much detail and then still it looks...hmm..how to say it ..so right ! And so easy, even if it is not !

Many of the brands would be really much better off with you as a designer cheers

Now, you say you still have the birds, - please, please, could we see a picture of those all together, - I remember a tucan, pelican .... bounce bounce bounce

Wonderful to see your birds, and the jaguar, and a Pygmy Antilope, - I have not see that one before .

Not to boast ( or only a little Wink ) but to show more of your works, here is my Harriet-collection cheers

Thank you Robert, Luc, Joe and Susanne flower sunny cheers Very Happy I love you

@Luc, yes I do find it hard making legs with that clay - but I have another clay which I will use in future for larger animals like antelopes.
I don't quite understand what you mean by downers, sorry scratch bom

@Robert, thanks for putting it into my head to make one - I enjoyed it sunny

@Joe, thank you! I love the painting part the most bounce

Susanne, thanks for your picture, it's nice seeing them all together. It would be really fun to see Shawn's ones in one picture too.

The vulture looks like a grumpy old guy, but that is how some vultures exactly look like!
This is maybe your best model so far, but you made many very good models! cheers
I saw this improvement in talented sculptors before with Ana, and i just can't wait to see more of you in the future.
You made a great bird, which is nowhere to be seen in the modelworld i think... Rolling Eyes
Go on like this Harriet, you are going to belong to the best in a short time!
When i just look at the models that Susanne bought from you, they are all grewat, with a kind of softness, like you take your pictures... cheers
