PostSubject: A pretty big collie   Thu Feb 09, 2012 3:42 pm

A colleague at work asked me to make her a collie, for her sisters 50th birthday.

I started working on it last week, and by mistake accually, it became pretty big, almost 15cm long Shocked

It has to be done tomorrow, and fortunetly, it´s almost finished.

Here is some pics of the work in progress;




Dried and ready to be painted


For some reason, I painted it white first. Not sure why scratch



This is how far I have come. I will try to finish it tonight, and also make some kind of base.

I kross my fingers that it will turn out ok, and that she will like it Very Happy

Amazing. You did an awesome job. If she doesn't like it, I'm sure you can find a home for it here. Laughing I love the paint job you did on him and all the wonderful details.

@Vivien; Fortunetly, she liked it a lot cheers But I was realy nervous befor I gave it to her, ´cus I have never sold one befor like this, I have only made them as gifts befor. And when there is money involved, it feels like it´s more important that it have to be realy good, so it feels realy good that she liked it Very Happy

Sorry, but I wont do any more commision pieces for a while now, it´s realy exausting, and I have to have time to do other things to Laughing

@xfoxx; Thanx Noora, glad you liked him Very Happy

@Harriet; Thanx cheers I gave it to her this afternoon, and then later she told me that she had been showing it to everyone at work all night, both colleagues and the ones that lived there (we both work at a retirement home) That felt good to hear, ´cus I think that ment that she liked it. I hope that her sister likes it too (it´s her birthday gift)

Big thanx Ana, Amy, Deseo and Sylobe. I´m realy glad you liked him cheers


Now that I´m finaly finished with this one, I think I´m gonna go back to doing bugs for a while Wink

(we´ll see what you think about those ones Laughing )

Yes they sure are. We had a wonderful blue merle collie when I was young, and she was the calmest, nicest dog I have ever met I love you

The big brands sure have to make more collies, and not just the lassie-colored ones, but black/white and especially blue merle too Very Happy
