I wouldn’t be surprised if this has been the most wet winter so far that we’ve ever had! These guys took about a week and a half to finally be totally dry. So, in the picture, you are seeing the backs of the darker brown ones and the fronts of the light tan ones. One of the dark brown pig ones will be another Oxford Sandy & Black pig for me…Similar to this little guy who is ready to chow down on those tasty looking strawberries!One will look like this little guy who is snacking on some tasty blades of grass. This little guy or girl is a Tamworth, they are sort of a solid colored light-cinnamon brownish pig.One of the light colored pig ones will look like one of these sleepy little guys. These are Gloucestershire Old Spot piglets. And those are the for sure ones so far. Somebody has pulled a lot of the really cute different breed piglet pictures off of Duckduckgo.com images. So, some of the other pig pictures I’ll show when I get the other ones further along, will be of the adult versions of some other pig breeds I’m looking at for models for the rest of the pig ornaments.
These last four pictures are of Spirit Bears, which I’m using as inspiration for the spirit bear, which I’m painting for my dad. He, and through him, I, have a little bit of Native American ancestry. We don’t know for sure what kind we are a little bit related to, my dad was adopted and Grandmother hid the adoption records, and then she died, so that is that. So, any way, my dad really likes Native American imagery, so when I saw the bearish shaped rock in my bag of rocks, the ideas started percolating big time. I’ve been saving spirit bear images to my pictures for ideas for how to decorate the rock. When I settle on a design and get it done I’ll post a picture of what I came up with.
And the Kick-Fighting Bear shapes are ready to embellish. The paint is still usable that I mixed up, so all systems are go for doing them!
So, that is what’s going on so far with all of these air-dry clay ornaments and the bearish shaped rock! I hope you all have a very nice day! HAPPY CRAFTING!!!!!
