She's got her huge bat ears, her skunk stripe, and she's even eating a blanket! Which is just fantastic! See, Zan is an eater of all things. (thankfully only her things) We give her old shirts for bedding and she finds nothing more satisfying than eating them. Not just chewing them - she eats them. I'm surprised she hasn't had a bowel obstruction!
Here's some pics of her in all her icky glory!
I love my icky dog, and I love my sculpture of my icky dog! TheMidnightOrange did such a wonderful job! Stop by her shop and show her some love!

My first gusset was way too wide - making the chin crazy fat! I re-did the gusset for my finished chin and it looks much better! And here's the finished chinchilla!

Are these not the cutest little ratties you've ever seen? Her talent astounds me. Seriously. I spent an hour drooling over her flickr account. Well, probably longer. To say I love her work is an understatement.
And this badger? I swoon everytime I see him!
Please, check out her flickr page!
And her Etsy shop!
Show some love on her blog!
Perhaps I wax poetic, but I hope to be as skilled as she is one day.

Yes, it is very labor intensive putting these sculptures together. I started by digging through my thousands of watch pieces to find inspiration and pieces that I thought would work. The wings had to be light so I used the coiled springs (I uncoiled them and cut them smaller). Gears and cogs make up the detail pieces.
Here's my son helping me pic out pieces. Such a good helper!
The body of my bat is a watch body (with the face and top gears removed). His face is a watch face, cut and folded on itself to form a slight cone. Gears and cogs for eyes and tiny gears around the body completes it!
All I have left to do is mount it in a shadow box and send it off!! I'm excited to hear what Chris says!!
