Following the previous border collie, I had a request for another one - different colour this time
So I thought I'd just quickly put some pictures up:
right, back to cows....

A request for a selection of four different cattle models got me thinking about which breeds would make good little models. They need to distinctive enough to be recognisable as the breed they are. I'd made a Highland cow before so I knew that would work well:
I'd also made a black and white Holstein cow before:
So I needed two more breeds. A short browse on google, and I thought I'd try a Hereford:
So a final cow breed was needed...I decided on a Jersey since they have good colouring plus can have horns. Then I would have a balance of two dairy and two beef breeds, two horned breeds and two polled, and a range of colours and coat textures:
plus a cow bell :-) on this one

Another doggie commission, this time a Border Collie called Jess.
Had a quick practice in plasticine first...then had a play with the FIMO:
It was very tempting to carry on with the hair but looking at the photo, Jess doesn't really have a 'fringe' as such...
So I stopped. Here she is prebake:
And post bake and varnished:
And she'll be off in the post once she's all dried!
