Finally, another pebblehead!

Jenny brought me back this pebble from Nova Scotia when she was there in the summer, and I've had a pretty good idea what I was going to do with it, ever since she put it into my hand. However, it turned itself into a Mandrill, which wasn't quite what I had in mind. Still pretty pleased with it! Shame the first photo is a bit blurry.

I'll probably do a bit more tidying up before I mount it on a stand like the rest, but not too much, I think. I like it pretty well the way it is.

I love your pebbleheads! They are funky. :)

Are they hard to make?

I guess what I mean is, could I, with no sculpting experience, make one?

Thank you, Anna. I think you could easily do this. I had not sculpting experience once :) and have had no training.

You'd need an electric engraving tool like the one I use. Mine is a Burgess and looks a little like this, and cost, iirc, about £25. And earplugs!

I did try using hammer and chisel once, but found it very difficult to hold the pebble still while carving it.
