It was inevitable...

That I would create a saw-whet owl pendant, that is. Because I've looked and looked, but couldn't really find one that I liked that captured the cuteness of their little faces. I am not saying that this does it perfectly either (it may be a mistake to post this with this icon, thus providing the obvious side by side comparison), but it's not a bad first attempt.

Both of these should be clickable through to larger versions of the pictures, if you are so inclined.

Saw-whet Owl Pendant - Details by ~Eregyrn on deviantART


Saw-whet owl pendant made of Sculpey, painted with acrylic and sealed with Sculpey Glaze.

Dimensions are just over 2.5" x 1.75".

I did this in about 5 hours worth of sculpting (includes failed attempts that were squashed out and restarted), and about 2 hours worth of painting. There are already a bunch of things I will try to do differently on my next attempt (one of the wings is too thin for my liking; I want to do the eyes differently to make them easier to paint). But all in all I'm pretty satisfied with this little girl.
