Carving + Alfred

I've been trying something new this week.
First thing is another shelf unit, with carved detail.

The carved detail are actually skewers which I carved out with an electric dremel tool.

Up close...

Is and Lucifer trying it out :)

Painted but not dry yet....

And the painted detail. I think it turned out pretty good, and it adds a bit more detail to the shelves.

I'd like to introduce Alfred, the fantasy owl! I just love how he turned out. I made him with air drying clay and then added the feathers. I didn't want to make an ordinary owl and that's why he's purple, rather than brown or white. But he told me that he likes his feathers purple, so nothing to worry about ;)

Side view and his tail.

Love his ears!

Alfred will eventually be perched on his stand, which I'm still making. I'll probably make some companions for him since I loved making him. I think this is the cutest thing I made so far :)

Until next time!



  1. Alfred is just great!! He's very funny and cute! The purple fits him just right! //Hannah

    1. Thanks! He'll probably be perched on a high shelf or perhaps he'll have his own stand :)
