Flesh

Modelling flesh is a hard challenge. This is not my first try, but the previous ones were awful. First I tried to mix a fleshlike color from fimo, but it's impossible. The flesh is different everywhere! So I gave up the mixing, builded up the shape only from white, and added all the colors after shaping.
Now it's on my Etsy shop, but telling the truth I don't know who needs a halved pig. Perhaps it's good for a miniature butcher's or a historical scene. At the worst it would be a perfect Christmas gift for a butcher as a cellphone charm!

This is fabulous and it looks soooo realistic!

I've never seen this sort of thing to buy, I've only seen hanging meat in dressed dolls houses. I have a whole piglet hanging in my Victorian Shop, but this half of pig would look just as good laying down on a butchers block or kitchen table. :o)))

Bözse!
Ez megint zseniális, az ötlet maga szintén!
Egy előbbi bejegyzéseden mosolyogtam, mikor arról írtál, hogy nálunk nincs hagyománya a miniatűröknek...vicces történet volt.
És a bejglit imádom, a családomnak meg mutattam és ők sem hittek a szemüknek! :)

I love your side of pork. I saw it on Etsy yesterday, am wondering how it would look in my new witches house I am going to build.

Bozse, this meat is terribly realistic! It is a little bit scary how real it looks! Your talent is amazing!
