Ok, I admit it--I've been checking my computer all day to see if I am the winner of Melanie Miller's free Jasmine resin. In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, take a look at this entry from Mel's blog: While you're at it, you really ought to check out the entire blog. In addition to pictures of in progress models from her studio, Mel also posts a lot of really excellent tips on sculpting and finishwork. It's one of my favorite blogs and well worth adding to your reading list. I would love to win a Jasmine resin. Not only is it a great, performance friendly sculpture, but I've had the pleasure of meeting the real Jasmine. She's a molly mule belonging to Colorado hobbyist, Emma Loofburrow. I took these pictures a couple years ago at Jasmine's then-home in Littleton, CO. Isn't she cute? I just love her eyelashes. She was very patient with James and me during our visit. I submitted a few "Friday Tip" ideas to Mel so there is a small chance I might win... I'm not counting on it, but my inner optimist remains hopeful!
So, I guess I'll just keep crossing my fingers and hitting the refresh button!


  1. James and Jasmine are so cute!!

  2. They have matching red hair, don't they? The picture of James brushing Jasmine is one of my favorites.

  3. I love how the hair matches. You got some really good pics of Jasmine in her summer coat.
