Snowy Owl Update

Getting there, almost ready to add the shading to his face :) I like how quick using these plastic plates can be, but I don't get as much detail with them as I do when I use plexi glass So, while finishing with the thinner plastic plates is a lot faster, you sacrifice detail for speed.

He is coming along beautifully. feathers look soft an d follow form.
I admire anyone who has the patience to engrave. What are you using to etch with?
Hope you are feeling better.

I agree with the above comments, Jennifer. Looks like a Snowy in a snowstorm right now ...

Hi Jen,
Thank you for the compliment on the babes. I like the dry brush effect - it's fussy to do but gives a great look.
I didn't know you are a 'Nucker ... living in the land of kilts and haggis. How did that happen?
