Well with the holidays rapidly approaching I've been trying to keep the shop updated, working on my handmade xmas gifts and this awesome deer head ! he's going to hang above our fireplace ! once i finish coating him entirely in magic sculpt , I'm going to then sand him smooth and paint him. I've decided to airbrush him a light blue grey and then give him maori tattoos in a dark blue then age him.
I haven't worked on a taxidermy form since the class I took with Elizabeth McGrath and I forgot how much fun it is ! I may have to do one of the sitting fawn forms next. We have this great antique chair that is really to old to be sat in. So to keep people from sitting on it I'll place the fawn or some other sitting creature in it !
One of the xmas gifts I'm working on should be finished tonight ! it's a pair of hand warmers for my step father . The pattern id from the book Weekend Knits and it's so easy ! I may just have to make a few more for friends.
