My, What Big Ears…

The little sleepy hound has found quite a set of ears.  Not sure how she can possibly sleep at all with all of that reception power.

This is a lot of fun.  The Howler is sitting partially on the one ear, which is ruffling it up pretty dramatically.

Both ears, once again, were cut out roughly on the bandsaw and then “fitted” to the head by using pencil lead on the dogs head where the ear was to be placed…rubbing the ear up against the pencil lead to leave marks where the high points are…chiseling away the high points…and, then repeating the process again about a thousand times…or maybe fifteen times ( I lost count ).  Anyways, it’s absent minded relaxation and the end result looks pretty nice.

  2. Thanks Cheryl. They really are quite cute as they come along….I’m doing a little on each of them all at once so they’re all developing a personality at the same time.
