The nights are drawing in!

So the nights are drawing in and Shauns feeling the cold, time for a new fleece!
So principal photography has just finished on the new Shaun the Sheep movie and this is the time when we herd all the sheep back to modelmaking. So over the next few weeks at the workshop we shall be giving the sheep their new winter coats, giving them a good clean and make any improvements that are needed. I'm just finshing up with my adjustments of the all fours shauns, and hopefully be finished by the end of the week.  Over the next few months I should be posting some pics on how I went about it, but untill then here's Shaun in his most basic form.

So just a few gloves I've been making recently. A process of spraying silicone onto a former. Applying different textures by the process of altering the pressure of the airbrush and thickness of the paint. Love spraying this silicon you can get some great results.

2nd Spoon!

So I thought I would post a few pics of my second spoon which I made from Birch fished with Flax Oil.  Its a cooking spoon that's why it has that sharp point in the corner for getting into the corner of the pan when cooking.
Been great fun to do and I've been making a few more Spoon blanks with Nigel Leach this bank Holiday, so lots to do!

I would like to say a massive thanks to Nigel with helping me with this one with his guidance and inspiration!  Also I would like to say to any beginners here that it really helps if you can get a more experienced carver to help guide you in those first baby steps into carving.  Or go on one those great courses that many in this forum provide or get yourself down to Spoonfest.  Its helped me so much and made the process so much more fun, and I feel that I have progressed that much quicker because of it.  Big Kudos to all those great carvers out there who are willing to share their knowledge.  I Thank You!

Colorado spooning.

Just received my spoon for  the international spoon swap all the way from Colorado.  Made by a chap called  Bear Limvere. The spoon is made of Ponderosa Pine and is finished with "odies oil". A massive thank you to Bear. The swap has been of great inspiration to me as a new carver and will help me improve my own skills! Anyway here are some pics, enjoy.
