Ms. Fahrmann: Thank you! Glad to be here. It's going to be a brooch, I think it would look nice pinned into some froth of lace at the neck.
xAngelx: I got the cogs at www.mantofev.com
, they have quite a bit of nice, but VERY SMALL things. Those are watch cogs, so think tiny jewelry rather than broad adornment. But then, adorning borads is always fun...(ducking)
Cmmr. Obadiah: Thank you! Practice, practice, classes...or trade skills you don't have for skills you do!
Zircher: I just read the series in 2 days, all that had to go somewhere!
Jake of All Trades: Thank you so much! I ADORED your Torch of St. Dismus - that was a masterwork. I'm glad you like my trinket. I think the brass-notbrass work because it looks like the interior-exterior of the piece. Trying to combine those and pass it off as integral might've stunk. I'll make more in those mediums, 'cause I have them.
Cmsr. Swoosh: Thanks! Sculpy is a really tough medium. It's difficult to go back in and polish the fiddly bits because it stays soft. I'd much rather work in porcelain or metal, but hey, sculpey's cheap! I am going to have a scarab cast in metal - I'm seeing a watch battery and a tiny movement to make the wings lift slightly and vibrate at random intervals, which is definately not a plastic clay device.
Thanks again all, glad to hear your words!
