In between sewing and dying leather, I’ve been playing around with miniatures again. I’ve found it really important to give myself days off, allowing time for side projects and stuff that has nothing to do with horses. I know I’ll get burned out otherwise… and I’d rather not go through that.
Lately I’ve been making random pet stuff… starting with a couple of “wicker” beds:
I didn’t follow any particular tutorial, but found this to be super-helpful. They were made from a roll of waxed thread I’ve had sitting around for years, then covered with watered-down paint.
The second was technically made for cats before I remembered that cats don’t sleep in pet beds. Boxes, laundry baskets, yes, but pet beds?
I might sculpt a sleeping cat to stick in it anyway, just because. 🙂
That’s enough silliness for the day, I think. 🙂
