Meet Sam!

Time flies at the moment. I want to do so much but I also want to rest - it does not work together.
I am making an album of all my creations from the last 3 years and I HAD to finish this new creation because I saved the first page for him.

This is Sam. He is a little tapir who loves donuts- unlike his Mummy...
Sam is 5 1/2 inches tall and the donuts are about 1.3 inches.

I had to save one donut from being eaten by my Mum. I said to her that I have made him donuts and she said: "Well, I have to try one of those! (* thinking they were kinda small though*)" I thought she was joking but that she put it to her mouth. NO, that is polymer clay! Phew... just in time.

I hope you like Sam.


ps. don't forget to vote for Cody or Bits on the Golden George Award!  :P

Finally new work

Finally I have finished my latest work.
Mini 'Minnie' made after pictures from a lovely dog called 'Minnie'- a Jack Russell/ mini Foxie cross.
It took me quite a while because you want her to look like the real dog as much as possible.
Totally different then my other work because I usually make the more 'funny' characters with big eyes and my own style but now I had to work more realistic. Scary... hehe.

I had to rely on other people's opinion if she looked like the real dog because I only had some pictures of her.
 The mini 'Minnie' is 9 inches/ 23cm tall (with ears).
Hope you like her.

Hugs, Mel
