My Harriet Hare Sculpture, and the sculpting of a Sabre-toothed Tiger!

Good morning! After a slight delay in production due to the current crisis I’m glad to say that my Harriet Hare Sculpture is back in production here in Cumbria! I’m also currently sculpting a prehistoric Sabre-toothed Tiger (a Smilodon) for a British figurine producing company.

I’m sculpting the fur detail on the Sabre-toothed Tiger’s paws first as they need to be finished before I attach them to the rest of the body. The undersides look incongruously ‘cute’ compared to how the rest of this ferocious animal appeared!

This is painstakingly slow work as so much sharp detail has to be applied … with a needle! I’ll be posting more updates as I go along.

Right, I’d better get back to it!
