It feels great to finish a piece and now I can get another one started. This is my second sculpt of an animal. The Dino was a challenge so the next one should be easier. The armature is everything! From the bottom of the stand to the top of hat is 11". The dolls outfit is all leather. Always use leather needles and a good thimble. You probably knew that. My fingers were sore for a long time. More details will be on my web page when my wonderful daughter gets some time to put it up - after I get the photos to her of course. I will post two other companions which I thought might work with this doll but the Dino worked out better especially since I had this teal blue thing going on. Its getting late so they will have to be posted later. I'm pooped.

Time moves so quickly. I meant to have my drawing of the dino companion up by now. So here is a couple of photos of the drawing and the armature. I actually have the doll done now and I named the whole mini display; "Carnival." I will get it posted after I get some photos. You will be able to see how much I changed my dino from a scientific look to a happy friendlly little blue guy. I went to my daughters house in San Jose for a week to visit. It was like summer compared to Modoc. We had a great visit. Sharina taught me some techniques making wire wrapped jewelry so I can make some fancy new crowns for my dolls. I was also treated to barbecue ribs , sweet corn cake, artichokes and collard greens. It was so-ooooooo good! Our son in law; Sean can make a great barbecue. I think my favorite is his baby back ribs or maybe blue cheese burgers or maybe the salmon, no its definitely the ribs now! Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
