Some Mini Pine Needle Baskets, a Salmon and more of the Horse

Here are my latest creations and some pics of my work on the horse. Hopefully, I should have the sculpt finished tomorrow and ready for painting and flocking.

Beautiful work, I love the baskets, makes me want to drag out my basketry supplies. The salmon, and the horse so nice. I see your sculpting skills are not limited to wool. Some day maybe you will tell us how you ended up with wool as your chosen medium? I would love to know.

I especially like the Salmon. Is it 1:12th scale ?
What did you use underneath the polymer clay with your horse ? I'm alway's curious about how other people sculpt.

OK, maybe I should have read the post before this one. Sorry ! :-)

Hi Robin,

Your horse is looking amazing, I can't wait to see it finished. Your pine needle baskets remind me of my Mom, as she's done some beautiful woven pine needle baskets, too. I'll have to post piccy someday, as they are flawless.

Thanks, everyone!
Joanne, I think I ended up liking wool so much because it is so forgiving. You can always change and rework things. I also like that the end product is something between a toy and a sculpture and that wool is a bit more ecologically sound than some other media. However, it's kind of difficult to get really fine detail like little mouse toes.
Christine, the salmon is 1:12 scale and measures 2 1/4 inches. That would make his real counterpart 28 inches long. No aplogies neccessary!
Meri, I'd love to see your mother's baskets. They're a lot of fun to do. These are made with only a single pine needle for the coil and are the smallest I've ever done.
