My grandkids are crazy about the Disney movie,"Frozen," so I sculpted these cute "Olaf's" for both of them for Valentine's Day.  I used real twigs from my front yard for the arms and hair and sprinkled each snowman with some fairy dust, for my own special touch!  Each is holding a tiny hand sculpted heart. I plan to make an ornament for each holiday to hang on their arms. I'll make a shamrock, an Easter egg, a flag, etc. Snowmen like to celebrate the Fourth of July too!

Next up is a commissioned bunny and maybe one I can sell on Ebay!

This is my most recent work, a baby orangutan named Martin. He was a commissioned piece for a collector in Nevada.  See his hands?   I sculpted them using my technique that you will find in my "hand tutorial" here on my blog.

No one ever taught me this technique. I came up with it myself. If I can make tiny hands and fingers while having Parkinson's disease, you can surely make them too!
