Leatherhead Lion

Although similar to my Shoestring Lion, this lion shows improvement in the shape of the head and the faux woodgrain.  Work begins today on yet another lion head.  This will consist of a form that the soft clay will drape over and a mold that the form and soft clay gets pushed into.  Once the basic shape of the head is perfected, I can do all sorts of cool things with it, such as steampunk, millefiori, and extrusions.

With the computer issues resolved, my comic strip will return next Sunday.


  1. Oohh... this one came out really nice! I was thinking, what do you think about feathers as the mane? I can't wait to see the next progression.

  2. Feathers would be awesome! I will add that to my idea book. Thank you for the suggestion.
