Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

Assembling the Flock
Today I took the first step in assembling the little flock for my kindly wolf shepherdess. I made the polymer clay heads and legs and put the armatures together. Then I covered the wire with plush wool felt so I'm all ready to start felting tomorrow. I have some lovely cotswold curls wool which I'm hoping will give a nice sheep fleece. Working with this type of wool will be new to me. My plan is to "flesh out" the bulk of the sheep with core wool then add the curls. I have two different curl colors and will used one for the black-face sheep and the other for the white one.
