Nestkeepers Completed

Its exactly 2 years to the day when I completed the first 8 of these, I have finally completed the remainder 22. These were done with an Otis Alumni brother, Daniel Garcia from the Toy department. I sculpted the prototype, and then he applied his talents with the wax pen on the second cast, then the 2 of us casted the finals together. I then hand painted each one and added sculptural elements like manzanita branches, birds, nests etc., to make each one totally unique. Its a solid silicon cast, each one is about 5" tall - 10" tall.

I've also posted the painting my little darlings were inspired by.

The final photos are at this link below and are now available.
