Look alikes

I have been doing several look alikes these past weeks. One is a caricature of Rev. Thomas Bayes, a minister responsible for forming Bayes Theorum which was published post humously. (there is only one picture of him so they don't know if it's really him) The other is for a Dan in Canada. I still need to add his hair.Here are their finished pictures.
These are my favorite sculptings my to do. It gives someone their own mini-me or a likeness of someone else that is unique to them. I charge 299 for these figures. You can't find that low a price anywhere. additional animations are extra. They all come with moving eyebrows. If your interested, you can email me at I hope you all have a great weekend. I am on vacation from the newspaper and plan on getting my workshop in order!

Relocating my shop

I have been using our recreation room for almost ten years now as my shop. I turned the bar into a workbench and the televsion room into a staging area. Darlene has finally had it. She put her foot down when the dummies started making their way into the front of the house.

In her own words: " which dummy is going to stay up front with me and which one is going to the back?" Well, that wasn't hard to figure out, she was talking about me, right?

Needless to say, it was time to get a new shop. I had been outside fore 10 years prior to moving in. I like working in air conditioning and heat so I moved inside. My old shop is too small (or I've gotten too wide) So last week, I had a new one delivered to me and over the next few weeks, will be relocating back outside. ( I feel like a dog who pooped on the carpet and has been banned to the backyard!) I am, however, making it more comfortable this time. I am insulating it, adding a heater and an air conditioner and vacuum unit so I don't have to stand out in the heat to do woodwork and sanding. I will keep you up to date on how it goes. This little guy was finished up this weekend and is now waiting to take up his position as wise cracker to whoever wins him on ebay. As always, any questions, anything I can help you with concerning figure making or ventriloquism, feel free to email me at
