Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

Animals, Art, Personal, Photo, Weekly Photo Challenge

I love wood. I grew up with the scents of wood and glue, since my Dad has a workshop with all tools imaginable. He has always created things – still does actually – like Gyro Gearloose.

This little dog I made out of red meranti wood:

The brass frog once scared my neighbor. Senseless. She screamed and ran away. I was showing her the black wax model I molded. She thought it was real:

  5. Really cool…lovely keepsakes.
    You did a great job on the dragon. I really like the color.

    • First I applied the green, but that was too dull. So I added silver, and that did the trick. So nice of you to comment! :)
