Ana! I'm very impressed!
Thanks for info about empik. I didn't thought, that fimo is available in empik.
The mandrills painting is very artistic and perfect for me!
I could made an awsome collection of spieces not available for us, collectors!

Today i saw the painting for the first time...
Again an amazing job!
You really got a talent there,you should work for the Schleich company or so,haha.
Finally original models then!
In some animals species,there are very straight lines,where it comes to differ the colour sections,and in the face of the mandrill that is the same to.
But you're way of painting it is very natural to,and i am not sure what i like better,that means that you did a very nice paint-job!
When you're other work has the same quality like this animal,i am sure that you can start a business.
I am pretty sure,you would sell a lot to the people of this forum for a start.
That depends on the price you are asking for an animal,because you need so much time to make one,so it can't be to cheap of course,it is handwork and one of a kind.
In bigger numbers of production,you could sell cheaper maybe...
But for now,keep on doing this,and let us all enjoy your work!

I've made mistake: not I, but YOU could made an awsome collection!

Ana, we are waiting for more!


Może spróbuję też coś stworzyć, od dawna przymierzałam sie do zakupu Fimo, ale nie wiedziałam, że można to kupić w Empiku.
Na pewno jest drogie, ile zapłaciłaś Aniu za paczkę?
No i problem w czym wypalać? Ja nie mam elektrycznego piekarnika, a podobno w trakcie wypalania wydobywają się opary, które nie są zbyt wskazane dla zwykłego piekarnika, w którym później pieczemy jedzenie. Trzeba mieć oddzielny piekarnik do tego. W sumie mogłabym kupić jakiś mały elektryczny.
No i trzeba uważać, żeby się nie spaliło :)

I think what you have done with the mandrill is stunning, absolutley brilliant, not only have you sculpted a mandrill, but a very excellent sculpture of a dominant old male, who has positioned his body to prevent any one sneaking up behind him to steal what hes eating in a typical mandrill pose!
To use artistic jargon [which I generally dont like] you HAVE captured the very escence of what makes a mandrill a mandrill! Spot on, perfect!

If you dont want to make moulds , and from them plastic copies of your sculptures yourself small scale to sell [ if you do ,email me and I will buy models from you!] GO NOW TO SCHLEICH, with a sample of animals and ask for a job or commision!
Your sculpting standard is equal to theirs and you imagination for making an animal DO SOMETHING INTRESTING is light years ahead of their company!
And you have also judged an ideal size ratio for the mandrill rather than the often dodgy either too large or too small schelich scale for small or very large sized animals

Very seriously make some more animals so you have a portfolio of work and go see them or at least send them photographs, and see what happens!

Great work!
