1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / limestone trillium on: September 08, 2007 08:50:02 PM
Soooo, this weekend past I went to an SCA event. It was absolutely awesome! The entire weekend was class after class after class of all sorts of things, from costuming to cooking to stone carving. I'm not exceptionally proud of my sugar paste modeling results (though the wasps sure liked it...) or of my leather carving and tooling results, (though both classes were a blast and the teachers were great!) but I'm proud of my results from the limestone carving class, and I have to show off. I've never had the opportunity to try stone carving, so it was delightful to learn how (relatively) easy it is. A cold chisel, a mallet, and various files and rasps all worked with relative ease.

I like the first view the best - you can see the rasp marks on the petals and leaves, I was trying to go for them looking like the veins of the leaves.

The little dark splotch you can see in the stone outside the leaves in the top middle of the second picture appears to be a fossil. Not sure of what, though.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / tiny doll source? on: September 22, 2006 03:08:33 AM
I've poked around stores and the forum for a bit, can't seem to find what I'm looking for (might've used the wrong search terms, please don't shoot me if this question's answered elsewhere) I'm looking for small, female-figure dolls, not 'baby dolls' (I dislike the oversized heads on some I've seen. I just want semi-realistic proportions.) by "small" I mean perhaps 2 to 4 inches (up to 10cm). Any suggestions? Or should I just take up polymer clay (like I don't have ENOUGH hobbies Wink ) to make them myself?
