I finished up the slingshot boy, and glued him on. The scene still needed something, so I added a couple do-dads. The first was some logs in the fireplace, as suggested by Andy Pieper. They are twigs from my yard, with some sand for ash. I also sculpted a ball of twine out of green stuff. It’s too big for yarn, but for rough twine, I think it looks the part.
I’ll be painting the ash a light gray and adding some highlights to the logs, and painting the twine, of course. I want to add a title, maybe “Visit to Grandpa’s,” but I need to think about where and how.
