Willow, a Little Deer Fawn






I'm not overly thrilled with these pics. I tried different color backgrounds and the color was off on all of them. Blue came the closest to the real color. I'm trying for more pics tomorrow. I don't think these do her justice. if it's not too windy I'll try for some outdoor shots in lawn at the park across the street. Little Willow's eBay auction starts this Sunday.


These are a bit grainy. But they are true to the color. It's too windy for outdoor pictures today.  The winds are 37 miles per hour and gusting to 50 mph!

Blinken, a Life-Sized Western Screech Owl




I just finished this guy this morning. The weather was perfect for some outdoor shots.  It wasn't too windy for a change.  He's named after a little screech owl at the bird rescue where I used to volunteer.  There was actually quite a little crew of these guys, Winken, Blinken, Nod & Owl Jolson. Blinken was my favorite little guy to take to the school talks.  The others weren't quite as calm on the fist. My little guy is true to life size at only 6 inches tall and 9 inches long from the tip of his beak to his tail.  He is both wet felted & needle felted.

A new Little Flutter Mouse





I Just finished this little wee one last night.  I hope you like her. Her eBay auction is scheduled for this Sunday.  
I recently received some unsettling news.  Our post office maybe closing and there is no home delivery here. The nearest P. O.  is 22 miles away.  I'm going to a meeting this afternoon and will hopefully know more.  My only hope is that we can reach some kind of solution to keep it open, if only part-time.

Tiger




Here's little Tiger.  He stands 6 1/4 inches tall to the ear and comes complete with his blankie and toy felt mouse. I put a jingle bell and some lavender inside the mousie. Little Tiger's eBay auction starts this Sunday @ 6:45 PM PST.

Stella, the Barn Owl





I just finished Stella, this afternoon. She's both needle felted and wet felted.  And she has polymer clay feet and beak.  I also added tiny pearly white seed beads to her white spots.   I learned a few things about the the brands of liquid polymer.  I found that Sculpey liquid polymer binds pieces together better than Kato liquid polymer. Kato is much clearer while Sculpey is a bit more opaque and has a satiny finish.

Kiki


Kiki was quite a bit of work. She has hand rooted fur and her eyes were sculpted from polymer clay. I added several layers of liquid polymer to her eyes and they were hand buffed.
