Thought I'd post one of the favorite babies I've made.
A Chinese meat truck survivor with stunning blue eyes.
Ethel OG was a joy to work on and I lover making her eyes too.

I hope all of this works out and we can continue somewhere together <3

 Shocked This is AMAZINGLY REAL!!! I was trying to figure out the craft aspect when looking at the first two pictures and while this will probably sound really dumb, I thought that you had made an eye for your partially blind dog. I was seriously trying to figure out how you managed to stick a polymer clay eye in your dogs eye socket.

It wasnt until I saw the last two pics and thought wait a second, how did she get her dog to stand on her hand like that? that it hit me that you had actually crafted the entire dog (though Im still not entirely convinced that this isnt a real dog with a fake eye...). The wet nose, the toenails, that downward flop to the one ear - so much incredible attention to detail!! I am flabbergasted that this is not a real living, breathing, snuffling dog!

I am instantly in love; Ethel might be my favorite, too. The feet! The pudges! The one floppy ear! The resilient old gal's spunk! If I were seeing these photos on the local Humane Society website rather than here, I'd already be in the car headed to the shelter to meet this dog. Your work is always awe-inpiring and such a joy to behold.

I can not get over how realistic this is. You have lovingly rendered your furry friend perfectly. It's amazing.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Aw thanks so much for the love, everyone! <3
I don't normally get attached to my work but it was hard to send her off. I really loved how her eyes turned out.
But she has the best home with an amazing animal rights frontwoman and I know the art piece is loved there.
