It’s Time

In fact… it’s past time. My wife and I have finished up a few Solar System bracelets from the planet beads I had made. They’re being posted to Etsy now. If you like them as much as I do, I’m going to need to make some more. Learning their order, different chemical make-ups and temperatures…

Weevil deetail

(continuation from previous)… From the elbows up I’ve been painting and detailing the Sri Lanka Weevil sculpture. It probably would have been more professional to wait till I had daylight outside to paint the first coat of white primer but I was too excited to get’er started. After the white primer, I painted the eyes…

The Evil Weevil

Twas few nights after Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring except for a weevil, an EVIL WEEVIL! I’m still in the beginning stages of researching this Sri Lanka Weevil (Myllocerus undatus)… at least that’s what I think it is.

I really wanted to achieve a realistic turtle…

On the up-side…

I Hope you all had a super fine awesome Thanksgiving! I did, and we’re still eating the leftovers! The pecan pie’s all gone though… both of them…AND the burnt one…I couldn’t stop. Between meals, there have been an increasing number of niggling things to deal with including (but not limited to) THE HOLIDAYS!! On the…

In with the old – out with new

We’ve finally finshed the cake. By “we’ve” I mean “I and my ever-numerous chins”, by “finshed” I mean “gluttonously consumed in an absurdly short time”, and by “cake” I mean “everything Halloween related in our home”. How you doin’? During my last post’s festivities I had a number of ideas and out of sculpture-less guilt,…

Call me, Irresponsible…

I’ve finished sculpting the teddy bear! “For real?” you ask? “Fo reals!” I says. If you’ve been following along, you may recall I did a previous post about knowing when your finished. It was really less of a “how to” and more of a brainstorm with help from… you. Two things really sunk in for me after…
