I don't like to single out any specific group, but these little guys have a well earned reputation for this very type of activity. That's right! I'm talkin' about pack rats.
I was out of the shop for a couple of days, and one of these little guys was VERY busy while I was gone. I guess I'm just going to have to lock everything up. I thought this stuff was over when my children grew up.
OK, back to my fairy project. It's getting closer to completion. I got the wings cut out. I start with the wing pattern glued to plates of copper.
Drill a hole for each opening
And saw out the opening along the pattern line (forgive the fuzzy pic)
For the butterfly body I start with a piece of round copper stock and carve until I get the final shape
Here's a view from the top
The mushroom top required a lot of hammer work
The body parts are about ready for assembly
And the hair is coming along nicely
So now it's just about time to select the pieces of cholla I'll use to complete the piece. Thanks for looking.
