3rd Floor

Yes! Only one floor to go! When it's done I'm going to count the layers. There might even be 3 digits. It will be exciting.

Final Tattoo!

There! Done! And am I pleased!

My plan is to get the line work and the big color fills done first, and then to have the patterns in Mary's costume put in later. Hopefully this will keep the price done. I might re-visit the hair to see if there is a simpler way to do the highlights, if they should turn out to be too difficult/expensive.

Lil Lucy is DONE!

Whoa. She looks way bustier in these photos than she is in real life... gotta get her to teach me that trick.

Lucy progress

Lucy's feet began to fall apart, so I made new feet for her, to be attached tomorrow

Skin is on the tail
Hands are made and attached
Her neck is now affixed to her head.
A single hair out of place
 Busy day today, a little bit of back peddling. Lucy's feet are the first pair I have done with heels, and I was not overly happy with the way they screwed in to the floor (not to mention they were a bit chunkier than I had in mind.) The new models are much sleeker and hit the ground at a much more pleasing angle.

I also sewed the skin for the tail, patched the seams with pros-aide and painted the whole thing.

I made the hands from wire and epoxy and attached them to the arms.

And I glued the weird little fabric neck-flaps to her head, and
patched the seams.

In the image Lucy has a stray hair tucked behind her ear. I made this hair by coating a thin wire in pros-aide (seriously, love that stuff) and coating it in tissue paper. I then painted the paper and stuck the hair in place. Picked up that trick from Laika :-)

Lucy Progress

Feet and tail, progressing slowly.

Claire's Letter, nearly done

So the letter itself is finished, though before I send it off I may make a little frame, so that it may be hung proudly on a wall, and not wrinkled sadly in the back of a drawer :-)
