STEAMPUNK DOG GRUFF


Dug out my old clay and made Gruff. He's constructed over tinfoil. Legs are old keys cut shorter in back than front then screwed into his body. I got a mold at EDAC last year for making "Victorian Decor" so decided to use pieces from that to embellish him & make ears. He didn't want to be too pretty, so we gave him a pair of goggles & tiny little screws for eyes. After he was baked I added more "stuff" including a bolo tie end for his tail, applied some burnt umber to show his lines, then rubbed with silver powder. A cut off ear ring wire was inserted in his neck back, so Maggie can hook a chain on him when it's time for their walks.
