Well Sunday yet again slipped right past me.... as I think I mentioned before, Sundays tend to be my 'cram days'...where I cram every project that I have lingering into this one day....running here and there around the house..in a frantic crazed haze. I really should tie a piece of yarn onto my leg...I'll bet at days end I would have a VERY interesting Afghan !!
Mainly we worked on our Dumbledore Miniature for our collector. And what I have decided to do is post pictures here of his progress ...basically birth to fini! Which means I will be doing a lot of sneaking up on Richard and getting 'peering over the shoulder' shots... I will also take some shots of his body and dressing shots...(Dumbledore's...NOT Richards!!!)
Richard has the biggest task of all...as a truly dedicated anal perfectionist ...he is determined to get Dumbledores Lectern 'JUST RIGHT' ...which means tons of extra planning out and work ...don't ya just LOVE a challenge!!! Can you say ..."CRAZY ALREADY"...we can!!!! But it will be fun and indeed we do love a challenge and this one will be unique. Now we are taking artistic licence here as I have decided to create the Richard Harris Dumbledore (the first one) ...which means his clothing is different than the second...there are a lot less detailed photos to find than the second dude... and we are taking artistic licence with combining the second Dumbledore's Lectern with the RH one... but it just seemed the thing to do and we are nuts about that lectern...all the melty candles, gigantic golden owl...glass balls with dragon carvings...etc etc etc... and away we go!!!
So I will from time to time post pics of this piece in progress here on my blog...something that I rarely do ...as I seldom stop work to pop a pic... wish us luck!!!
I have posted a few pics to get the ball rolling ... these were just quick snaps on my worktable...head , legs and hands....
Head is without hat and glasses, hands are not yet painted and legs are just starting to be painted......I will begin putting all together today while Richard will be sawing and doing shop stuff today.......let's see if I can 'sneak' up and snap snap without causing any accidents..... I promise to be VERY careful and quiet!!
Let the Project Begin!!!
Jodi and Richard
