The last acorn looks good to me too, but maybe use a rasp or a file to texture the top

Oh and if it were me, I'd get rid of the background & just make a loop out of the stem!

you could use the end a brass tube to stipple the top of the acorn

Why do I feel funny writting 'ocopi' eventhough it's the correct word? LOL I love them anyway, one more thing for me to try.

Default Boro Work

Starting playing around with some of my Northstar boro the other day, ended up with some new keepers . The tree was my first try at real sculptural work, and the turtle was a tube implosion, my second try, hope you guys like them.
