New Baby Giraffe!

I was commissioned to sculpt one of my baby animals. My customer said she would be happy with any of them, so I decided to sculpt another baby giraffe.  In between Bunco parties, my kids coming home for Thanksgiving, and Christmas shopping, I was happy to finish this baby and get it off to it's new home yesterday!  It will arrive in a custom altered box embellised with old dictionary pages and giraffe ephemera. I should have taken a photo of it before I shipped. Darn!

I used Fimo clay for this little guy.  He has onyx eyes and has been painted with acrylics followed by a stain to give him a vintage look.  I pencil in the free style pattern of his spots before painting. 

Hopefully, I will find some time to make a couple of Christmas themed animals for Ebay, so please keep watch!
