I've been making Angels

I am unsure how angelic they are however, 
 this one is my favourite.
Do angels have to have wings?
I must have misplaced my glasses when I was making this fellow.
The wings have been described as tooth fairy wings.

A Beetles hair do.

These wings were just attached to the garment  and did
put a bit of stress there. 
Is that a crack I can see with the wings falling off?
Not a good look for an angel.

Much more modest wings. 
I will have to do some angel image research.
This has all come about from a phone call, a mother had
just buried her adult son and wanted some angels for the grave.
This is an important challenge I hope I meet. 
Might take a few more tries though.

This was inspired by a young persons creation.
I was impressed that the stars worked 
in perfect harmony with one of our plaster press moulds.
I had to try on too. 
I might become a lid for a candle platform.
I was surprised to see so many lambs all playing together.
They run like a school of fish.
There were about 16 lambs in this group.
Just 3 supervising mothers keeping a close watch.

I like that star bowl. If you felt you would like more inspiration on angels (not that you need it) you could have a look at the Eucalyptus Homewares website or blog. They are in Western Australia.

I think you will do very well with the angels. What a commission! These two are handsome fellows.
