Wallace and Gromit completed....phew

Done it, finished my Wallace and Gromit. This is for my Uni project for our presentation on Friday, which is entitled The Perfect Prop. We have to make a copy of something, so I've gone for my fav Plasticine figures (that and I've done them before so knew what I was doing!! - cheat). I have had a play as well, with wire, silicone, resin - all good stuff! Not sure if anything I've made is much cop though!

Anyhow, thought I'd pop on a few photo's to let you see the finished results.

Now on the crafty work front, I've got a 2 hour show coming up on Tuesday - I've had a sneaky peek and there's some cracking stuff in it! I've got the weekend to get it ready, so hopefully I'll be able to get some photo's on next week of what I made.

I've also got a book signing and demonstration sorted on the 11th July, in Sandwich! Brilliant, it's a beautiful place to visit, and not a long journey! Hooray. It's called "A Makey Do", and there will be people selling their brilliant art and craft products, things for the kids to get involved in, should be a great day. It's being run by a lovely lady (not actually met her yet, but she seems lovely!) called Jenny. Visit the blog to see the beautiful work and talented people who will be there:

Okay, better get on with my wire ant nest (don't ask!!).
