Details, Details, Details

They say, "God is in the details". But, I've also heard it said, "The Devil is in the details". (Maybe a bit of both).

I have gone back to add a bit more definition to the fur on this side.

This is the claws of the cub's paw. Just needs a bit more refinement.

The back paw of the same cub - the one being cleaned.

I use 80 grit sandpaper to smooth the claws.

I use a die grinder to gently open the cub's pupil.

This is what the family looks like from above. Almost done.

Queen Annes Lace holding snow.

Daphne with ice crystals.

A cat has made it's way to shallower snow.

Otey: the smallest of the donkeys, but the boss!

Finishing is always a double edged sword, as it often feels like starting the piece all over again.(No, wait, that's mold making!)
Just be pleased that it's come so far and looks Good!
(Here in Portland we were running around in 60 degree sun thinking it's spring! we'll soon be disillusioned by rain and 35degrees, but it's heaven while it lasts...

Thanks for the encouragement. It's difficult to be enthusiastic when the day starts out at 1 degree! 60 degrees sounds wonderful! In fact, 35 degrees doesn't sound bad....
