And the Dumbledore Saga Continues....

OK...day two...not much to show really ...all the cool fun stuff has not really started yet . Here are a few misc. shots.... The first is Richard's drawing of the lectern ...and shows the changes that he is already making...(BAD JODI...BAD) ...I wanted him to make the wings bigger/wider ...so I think he reluctantly did a simple mark to show where I would like them to expand to ...I am surprised that he did not make a little
&*%$#! after the word 'Owl Bigger' ....hee hee!! I made marks on the photo to show the parts he is working on in the pictures below.
Next pic he is working on the Lectern post on his lathe (that was one of 'sneak up and shoot' pics)... One the next picture I was not so lucky with the sneaking...busted!!! So I snapped him milling the Plexiglas block into a shape like in his drawing at the bottom of the post.
Next shot is the post finished and lacquered...ready to be gold gilded. And last is AD in his skives ...I always put undies on our dolls even though they are seldom seen...and on Dumbledore I even monogrammed with an 'AD'... never to bee seen...but I know it is there... By the by his head is just 'sitting' on the body and not yet attached...it will be much easier for me to dress him and them add his head last...there will be much beard and hair straightening up in the end. His shoes are painted now.

So today I am beginning the clothing and robes and Richard will start the Owl I believe...

Happy Tuesday All

Jodi and Richard

All my dolls wear undies too! ;-) Even though they are rarely seen... I also mark them in various areas that is almost always covered.
