I got the idea for this piece of work while out walking my dog and came across some wonderful fungi that was growing in a bank of moss after some careful thought i decided to have a bash at making some but wasn't sure what material to use.
After looking through my bits and bobs i decided to carve them from all the tiny bits i keep when making other miniatures in this case Whitby jet, Ivory and Tortoise shell it didn't really matter if i broke the pieces as they were starting to take shape as i have plenty of offcuts and tiny broken bits with which i could start again but i was very happy how they turned out, i've always struggled to find a use for these tiny bits of material but it turned out so well i don't think this will be the last you see! Next up to make a cabinet in which to display it. ☺
Have a great weekend everyone. Tony.
