Temperatures are rising in my area this week, making it increasingly difficult to work with the clay. It gets too soft and sticky to sculpt properly. To compensate, I have been trying to sculpt my commissions by night when things are cooler. This is the busiest I have been with commissions all year, and I apologize for any delays this new schedule has caused. I am doing the best I can without air conditioning.
Until I catch up with my commissions, the cockatoo project will be delayed. I am still planning to update my shop on October 1, and I hope to include as many cockatoos as possible. Some cockatoos I am planning to make are gang-gangs, galahs, sulphur-crested cockatoos, and some corellas.
I am also working on my owl projects, with a batch of starry owls and woodland owls set for the October update. The starry owls are nearly complete, while the woodland owls are still in concept stages. I am very happy with the leaf designs so far.
