The White Rabbit

I made this little guy a while back while playing with modeling paste, and just got around to painting him last night. I'm including him in the Mad Tea Party on my other blog. 
I added him with wire to an old wooden block that I altered. I bent the wire in a spiral to simulate the rabbit hole, I think I like it.
Use a plastic card to spread paste in a thin layer over cardboard and draw a picture into it with a stylus or pen, let dry and paint.

A Work In Progress

Currently working on this tall thin guy, putting down layers of paint and testing patterns.
Notice his hands are two different sizes? Love the creep factor that goes along with that. Tee-Hee.
I'm working on his coat right now, a rough cross hatch pattern I put on quickly this morning just to see if I like it on his coat, I think I do so went and picked up some very fine brushes today and I'll paint over the roughed in lines with gray and start over again with neat lines.
 Close up of roughed in lines.

I've still got to make his cane, it will come up just under his large hand.
Love those tails.

I'll show more pics when I get him finished.
