hi Liz I am still trying to get a hang on this site! I seem to have lost your original message and with it the name of the website you suggested! Many many thanks for your kind words they mean a lot.
If you could possibly send me again the name of the website that would be great

How in the heck did you keep the margarine from turning into a goopie melting mess while working with it? The details are amazing! Never will I ever be able to look at a tub or stick of margarine the same way again.

Congrats on the DD!

Many thanks for all your wonderful comments, and yes the picture quality is bad I apologise.
I made this for a competition and had to submit a photo! The website wouldn't accept anything but a low residue pic.
Inside the piece is 15mm copper pipe covered in tin foil.
Great to see it featured here.
Wish I had taken a better picture.

You know, I thought, really? Another lame unsophisticated soapstone statue? Then I saw the medium. HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU GET THE MARGARINE TO STAY HARD? Is it a special chemical, or just cold?



You are talented, no doubt about it. :hug:

What I like is the title is so apathetic. "Oh, y'know, it's just another sculpture of Elvis mode from margarine. No big deal"
