I made this one out of a clay called Super Sculpey - it's oven cured.

You wouldn't by any chance be a TetZoo reader, would you? I ask because he had an article on hoopoes not too long ago... Fascinating birds, I had no idea they were related to hornbills!

Harriet, your sculpting skills are getting to proffessional levels, you know there is good money in wildlife art. Every time I see your work it brings me joy. I love the work you put into the details to bring your peices to life, and the painting is truly amazing. Keep up the good work.

Happy sculpting
