Trilobite Show

Here's a look at a few stages of this trilobite's construction. Starting with a wire armature, I worked the sculputure to completion. The surface is hand painted, using a variety of brushes (but NEVER an airbrush).

So you are an artist or a scientist, maybe both. I am fascinated by Ontario's geology. I assume you have visited the Craigleath fossil beds. More trilobites there than you can ever imagine. Its just west of Collingwood. Mick http://rockwatching.wordpress.com

I was there as a kid. We found trilobites(usually only a pygidium) when we camped on Georgian Bay. Lots of cool sculpins in the bay too!
