I finally finished this baby pig. It is for the pharmacist’s baby. She loves farm animals, and her dad has been a great help to me.
Thanks to Jonni for her lessons and great talent. I have loved her kune kune pigs in “making animals” for over eight years. A great project.

How could you not fall in love with this pig? So cute and so well done! You are a true artist Rex.
Your pig is wonderful, love the painting design too. I’m trying my best at the moment to do my own, it’s much more difficult than I thought 🙂
Jonni’s book is a great teacher. I live in the world of “more difficult than I thought,” but I love doing it. I look forward to seeing yours when you are finished.
I’ve purchased 2 of jonni’s books and currently working on my pig but omg it’s gonna be a beast lol and not a cute little piglet ??
Maybe you could call it a boar? But seriously, if the first one doesn’t come out the way you want it to, just call it “practice” and make another one. That’s what I do all the time. 🙂
I agree with Jonni. You “see” more each project you do.
If you have trouble with something, at times it helps to ask. I was making paper mache for a year before getting on this site, and it has been a vast difference. People have suggestions for anything.
Yes that’s good idvice, a happy accident ?
One thing for sure, at times a sculpture takes on a life of its own!
Happy accident 🙂
Eileen, it is a triumph to get back to it. Hope to finish lambs next!
Love the pig! Makes me want to make a “Homestead Family” of black/white pigs, cows, and baby goats! Nice job.
I hear you. I have done pigs (kept my favorite one that will never leave me) and have done cows, so I guess baby goats are next! That would be fun. My neighbors have goats, and Teca used to play with them (my dog). They are fun creatures.
Rex, this piggy is just awesome so cheerful .
Thanks, Pia. I used glass eyes on this one. First time. She is kind of looking up, which I think adds to her character. Thanks for your tutorials.
ACE PIGLET!! Are animals your specialty?
Thanks, David. 99% of my projects are animals. I love doing them, although they are always a challenge!
David, I realized that I have done hundreds of pumpkins (and pumpkins turned into holiday-pumpkins). Other than that, animals mostly!
I must make a pumpkin for this years Halloween.
Cute little pig Rex! Another triumph of a piggy! Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to sculpt again as well.
