Stump Tortoise by BrittaM Stump Tortoise by BrittaM
Finally, he is done! The turkey-tail fungus and lichens were the finishing touches he needed to look complete.

I wish I could afford this one. It's one of the most original pieces I've seen on dA.

Thanks! I wasn't planning on selling him, but I've had a number of people suggest I design a planter/flowerpot based on him and cast it and sell copies, so I may do that.

I love this! What materials did you use and how big is he?

He's made of a mix of Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm over a pretty hefty wire-and-epoxy putty armature, and he around six inches tall and seven inches long from nose to tail.

This is really cool. You're not going to add any more color or anything?

Thanks! I'm going to be painting him (as soon as I can find my desk again), so I guess the "complete" only refers to the sculpting part.
