After trying to get the ear placement correct on my latest cat piece, I resorted to a suggestion given to me on Wetcanvas.com. I made a(very!)crude sculpture of a cat's head out of a kneaded eraser and bent it down in the desired position. I then bent the ears in the direction I wanted. I realized I was in the ballpark with recent corrections but wasn't quite all the way to home base. Please forgive my lack of sculpting skills. *LOL* I've done sillier things to help create my fantasy work. Oh well, it's all in the name of art...right?
