the kit has just arrived really good service .problem is now I have to accommodate it in my small workshop. So it means a good clear-out. Just trying to fit a pint into a quart? .Its all the debris I create whilst carving as the wife says not the tidiest of people .have to agree with her trouble is I am to focused on achieving my goal its only when I stop and look after the aftermath it sinks home.. I am looking around for the best paint to use other than my tube paints as I don't want to block up the air gun

thanks for tour help . good idea to use plasticine

Thanks for all your ideas it all helps a combination of wire and a epoxy putty I can see being useful.

Awesome looking dragon cobalt. You did a great job on the teeth. Look forward to seeing it finished.

The ears I did on the lines of a frilly lizard ,perhaps I should have got them to flow better into the head

The teeth where pieces of dowel .quite a few changes from the original drawing  its easy to make precise marks with a pen but carving it is a bit more cumbersome .So changes where made during the carving

No work done in the shed as of yet lack of motivation but a few drawings done in the warmth of the room .Thinking of makeing the dragon and griffin part of a interchanable sytem before i finish carving it . along with a few other drawings .

I have to say Americans have a great decoy site with some out standing carving on it and has made me look into a wide range of waterfowl as changeable toppers for myself

I need a few particular shanks to work on so it looks like I will have to buy some the ones I have are okay for working shanks but would like some up to show standards like a nice chestnut a crackle glaze type finish on a hazel and a pinkish flec in some hazel I have seen 

I havnt even started to use the air gun yet but the days are getting longer just hope they don't get colder

couple of photos as to where I am at although I may redraw then a bit smaller
