Threads in Bring and Brag are generally masturbatory horseshit, this one is alright though.

Alright, this is the first Christmas sculpture. I made this one for my mom, who is an elementary teacher (Grade 3-4).









It includes a painted wooden plaque (the spiral of silver is centred around the teacher's chair) and hand-made props (chair and table were cut from plywood and painted/glued together. I even did a pencil and paper.

The teacher figure is distinguished by her neck-length hair, which was a bit experimental and didn't go perfectly. The child is sized more or less proportionately, although the hands are a bit big.
Is it plugged in?

Christmas present #2: for my sister this time. She's big into horses, so:











It's the first time I've tried a horse, but it went under the same principles/methods I used to make human figures. I made loops for the mane and tail, then cut them later with wirecutters to form the individual strands of "hair". The horse is proportioned correctly (I used an online guide, and my sister confirmed later on) and also has such details as a mouth, eyes, nostrils, ears, and hooves. The person's hat is glued on with hot glue, and the horse is nailed down (tenuously) with staples.

For my GF:






As always, one piece of wire.



For my dad, who is a major Ford fan:







The letter and frame were made separately, and one of his co-workers helped me by welding the letters in place.





Roger/Dok Howl has the last piece I did, and unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it. The only solution is to pester him until he posts pics.

That's cute!

Done.

I also recommended that she replace your peelz with laxative.
