I really want to be great at making miniature animals and dolls. I've tried dolls several times but I always end up disappointed with my result.. Animals are also very hard. I have made a few needle felted animals I really like, but I can't say they are lifelike, more cute and like plush animals. That's great too, love those too, but I wanted to make some lifelike animals too.. and tried flocking a few years ago. Disaster.. tried again, not good. And again, first it looked like yet another disaster, but in the end, I kinda like it. Not the rabbit I thought it would be (I should have learned by now that nothing ever ends up the way I think, it's the clay and the wool that decides...), but this got to be an OK "lejonhuvad kanin" (I don't know the word for this type of rabbit in English, direct translated from Swedish it would be: Lion headed rabbit.)
I made a quite simple "base" out of polymer clay.
I added an extra nose of pink polymer clay too, I thought the original one disappeared in the wool =)
I'm not that pleased with the result from this view, the nose is a bit weird.. But it's OK, for being my first clay/wool rabbit ever..
From this view I kinda like it =) Now I'm super excited to try a cat or a dog or more rabbits, but right now I have to go to sleep, and this week and weekend I have no time, so I have to wait several days until I can try this again, I hope I haven't lost the will to do it by then =)
(And yes, I finally feel better from the nasty cold I got, still a sore throat in the mornings, but I'm getting better =) )
