It Took All Day...

Mini Haggis with his whites on

It took all day, but I finally got to finish on the Mini Haggis. This last step in painting Mini Haggis was simple (just add white) but very time consuming because of the intricacy of the pattern. In the end though it made for a very interesting piece. Overall, I'm very pleased with the way he came out and my favorite part are his hooves. They were nicely sculpted and great fun to paint. Even the underside of the one raised hoof was fun to add detail to.

Wow! That Haggis turned out spectacular! He is just so gorgeous. The bitty bosco looks great, too. Thank you for sharing all the in progress pics and the final - lovely!
