My Workspace - Making Possums!

Recently I had such a fun commission from a miniature collector. She asked for a couple of one inch scale (1:12 scale) opossums sitting down toasting marshmallows for her diorama. I was happy to take the commission on because it's such a fun and original idea. They would measure just less than 2 inches from head to end of tail if they were standing upright. They have soft downy bodies.

Here are some pictures of my progress (un-posed in my workspace sitting on my iPhone). The possums are  finished but I haven't make the little sticks with marshmallows yet... will do this soon and post finished photos for you to see. As always, feel free to comment or ask questions. :)

  5. Thank you so much everyone! It's my first time trying to do mini animals (well apart from my toads and bats) so I was worried they'd come out really wrong. Thanks for your lovely comments. xxxx
