I finished my UFO for the month! I still need to open the 2 larger eggs, but here is the little one completed and mounted on its base. It turned out really cool - I need to make more of these!
The little tape creature inside is the armature of the baby dragon who will be "hatching" out of the egg. (I see now that a neutral beige background was a mistake for this particular photo. Oh well...) I have the clay mixed and conditioned and ready to begin sculpting... now I just need to find some time to concentrate.
And, just because I can, I have begun another Breyer repaint, this time of a Spirit Classic. I am *trying* to remember to make myself take in-progress photos, but so far I keep forgetting. I lifted this photo off of the internet to give you a decent "before" shot.
I'll post an "after" shot later this week. His paint job turned out beautifully, and now I'm just waiting on a supply of embellishments so I can finish his wings.
I have been reading up on these. Turns out there are techniques whereby you can actually reshape the model into other poses. That sounds like something fun to try next...
