Bill, I am very impressed with your skills here! It looks real enough to eat from my bird feeders! You have me confused, though

It looks to me like you have already done an animal with fur (the chipmunk). Isn't "fur" simply a thick arrangement of "hair"?

Beautiful work!

Thanks for all the comments and yes , I understand what some are saying about the hair/fur relationship..

I guess what I was referring to was drawing out the fine lines around the edges to look like hair on the outside without realizing the layering of them in the darker areas made them to be fur.

Bill, if you have dug through the posts in this section you most likely saw this before but it still amazes me. This was the third effort by my late wife Sue. Some people just have the knack for it.

When I first started reading your post where you said you were burning animals on wood, I thought one of our members had snapped his twig. Since I make pet urns I thought we had someone cremating animals. After I scrolled on down I saw your work. It is beautiful. You do wonderful work. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Looks great to me. I'm not a burner but you work is impressive.
