Recently,. or, earlier this year I got the idea to start taking pictures of some of my pieces in a 'before and after' type of way; basically a 'before' of the item where it's just the sculpt, straight out of the oven and an 'after' where shading, glazes etc. has been added.

I'm not sure if I'll ever get to use them or share them the way I'm hoping to, but I have this idea of some day, making an e-book or something similar where these would be part of the content. I think it would be helpful for others, who would like to create miniatures, to see what the bare sculpt looks like in comparison to the finished piece - to see that the sculpt itself may not look that impressive on its own, or to see the dramatic difference a bit of paint can do.

It's been a while,. probably a couple of years really, since I've made any roasts. It used to be one of my favorite things to make. I really love making meat and fish. I'll be finishing up a couple more of these hams this weekend and will hopefully be able to list them in the shop tomorrow or Sunday :)
