Project FIVE: Wire Hydrant

I know, I know... you were all looking forward to seeing some homemade paper. Unfortunately, I have to push it off ONE more day. Some of my handy items are out of my reach until later tonight, so I will work on paper tomorrow. Call it an End-of-the-week Prize!

In the meantime, I thought I would continue practicing with wire. This 3D design is a bit of a mess, to be honest. Again, I used the floral wire, which as I noted before, has its pros and cons. I should have kept it a bit "cleaner" with the line work, but got a little over-zealous with the wrapping. I've definitely learned from this attempt, though. And, go ahead... call me a sissy- but my fingers are a bit sore. I need to build up my sculpting calluses. (When I start sewing, I'm sure that will help!)
