Rodeo figurine update

The little Rodeo figurine is almost done, Rene has just finished the clean up stage, then he'll do the final version in tin soon...I can't wait to see it!
You can see on the first picture the clean resin sculpt, then the one with grey paint to check that every details are OK, ready for the tin.





And 2 pictures of the making of the box from 2 different kind of woods, it's going to be beautiful!
If everything is going well and Rene is not too busy, we will be ready to sell the first figurines in January!

Very nice to see how your friend spents time and care into what he is making. None of that cheap rushed don't give a shit about what I do attitude. He cares and that showes.


By the way Steph, can you come to my blog and show how you can make Headers ? That is ; http://gur-b.blogspot.com/

Yeap, Rene said that he doesn't need any alarm device at home, a burglar would kill himself just walking around in the dark!

It's true Gur-b, it's so nice to work with people who care about what they do and have a passion in making quality product, and Rene is so patient and talented.
can you give me the address of your blog again Gur-b?
