vultures have a patina

The vultures came through the fire intact. I was concerned about them cracking around the wings or necks, but apparently, the fire gods were smiling. I decided on a bronze-like patina for them, which I think came out okay. I see all the flaws, but I hope you don’t — or can at least forgive me for them. 

Now, I need to find a base to attach them to. I’m thinking simple but on the tall side. 

anyway…here they are.

for the birds

just in case you thought i’ve been idle, here are some pics of the most recent water birds, just finished yesterday.
for some reason, i can’t seem to get decent photos of these two, but you all get the idea. the cormorant is about 10.5 inches and the pelicans are about 11.5 inches at the highest point. both sculpts are sculpture clay with pigmented wax finish.
