colored coyote skulls

I got some dye for the urethane plastic. The brighter ones glow under UV lighting.

Just thought I'd post some cliché webcam photos of myself, mainly so I can look back and think, "wow, I was so young"...
Here's my horse sculpture in oil clay.
And here's my kitteh.

Plein Air painting & photography


 Went hiking in the woodland hills area with my pals Laura and Raquel. It was a gorgeous day, and the weather was perfect. We saw a coyote, a tarantula, and many cute dogs on the trail.



The bottom pictures are HDR images. I brought my tripod and took several photos of each scene with different exposures, then layered them together later in photoshop for a more complete lighting scheme.

castings!

I spent last week preparing the skull parts in beds of clay, then pouring silicone over them to make the molds. Both the jaw and skull are 2 part molds. I was exited to finally pour resin into them; they work! I plan to continue using "Blake Black" dye..
