Panther Chameleon by Death-Pony7 Panther Chameleon by Death-Pony7
This is my newest pride and joy! It's an Ambilobe Panther Chameleon. He's by far my favorite sculpture I've made so far!!! It took me two weeks to build this beauty, but it was worth every second. The retractable tongue is my favorite part! I curled his tail around the driftwood branch to provide extra support, which they actually do. The tip of his tail was the most tedious part since there was so little space to work in. There's even a cricket "jumping" off of the stick that's positioned where his tongue stops.

Panther Chameleon by ~Death-Pony7. A chameleon made of wire, about 20" long and weighing about 10 lbs. The suggester said, "The detailing in the chameleon's body and the structure is just brilliant, and I love the whimsical way it's grabbing the wire cricket in the bottom picture."

It's going to be a while before I finish this next project.  I'm experimenting with sealing cicada wings in resin.  There are absolutely no tutorials on how to do this, so it's a lot of trial and error until I get the technique perfect.

That sounds interesting (and somewhat difficult)! Good luck! Coming up with new stuff is half the fun, even if frustrating. The best stuff can come from doing it all the wrongs ways first. :)

I think I finally found a suitable coating!  The resin kept pooling, but polyurethane goes on smooth.  It just takes several coatings.

Oh how exciting! I'm glad it's working :) Will we get to see them? (Or at least me, because it's pretty fascinating - I still can't imagine) and PS, I hope you are feeling better!

I'll post photos as soon as I get a good amount of them finished.  
It's going to be a long road to recovery.
