As you might have seen in previous posts, I also dabble with hermit crabs. I have always loved the real animal and for years, I wanted to sculpt in a real shell. I collected shells for several years, but never could build up my nerves to actually make one until a couple of years ago.
He turned out perfect. He was also quickly given away to a friend and I began making many more. I don't work with them as much as I used to..but I always enjoy picking out just the right shell to match the right crab.
Often, I try to sculpt the crab from a chosen shell, only to have the
crab "decide" that it wants a different shell to match it's
personality. Yes, I'm odd. :) You know this little guy just wants to crawl home with you.
