Granny and Baby!

The mohair was not what I expected and am not sure it is sellable. On the good side, I am going with a friend to a place to learn to spin, so I'm going to use the mohair for spinning and see what happens. I am SO excited!

Here's a couple pictures of my newest sculpture to add to the Metrobian Clan: granny & baby. Granny sits less than 2.5 inches!

My other finished sculpt:

The baby is sitting on my wedding ring (size 8). Then I nestled him inside a glass teardrop.

YAY! mohair is on it's way!!

I ordered 2 pounds of mohair the other day. My paypal account finally had enough money to get it in. One pound is probably not going to be in enough locks to dye & sell for sculpts so I intend to dye it and visit a shop nearby that has a spinning wheel I can try my hand at spinning the hair into yarn. Squeeee! Sounds like FUN!

The other pound I will be dying and selling. I prefer to sell off ebay so if anybody wants some, lemme know! I'm trying to remember the price I've sold before because it was usually a bit cheaper than the 'normal' price on ebay. This is a first shearing on a kid, so it is EXTRA fine and silky. I will have to wait and see the quality when it arrives, so stay tuned!

Also if anybody has any color needs/preferences please let me know now so I can customize it for you!

Hopefully, I'll have my latest sculpt finished. I just need to put hair on the granny & baby, but it is pretty neat! I can't wait to see it finished & photographed!
