The Shaggy Dog

Well, with the help of a small gouge, our little dog became the little shaggy dog.  Paul calls him Snoopy and I’m not sure why…

With the rough contouring I did earlier, the small gouge accentuated the hills and valleys in his coat and made the whole thing come to life, I think.  I added a metal ( lead ) collar and tag as well.  The tag is attached to the collar with some copper wire.  If you use lead, remember, it’s safe as long as you don’t ingest it…so, wash your hands after handling it.  It’ll all eventually be painted and sealed.



I also started a covered birdcage and little bird that somehow got out just in time for the big move.  This thing is getting tall and I’m not sure where I’m going to put it once it’s done!
