Got some clay today. Gonna make my two piggies tommorow I think. :) Can I also make them a bit larger?

Good to hear :) Yep you can make them larger if you like, just keep in mind that you may have to bake them a bit longer with the thicker clay. Another option if you want to make bigger guinea pigs would be to make a ball of foil for the inside and shape the clay around it (if you didn't want to make the clay to thick).

Guinea Pig? More like Gmini Pig.

Nicely done. It's very realistic looking for something so small.

Knowing me, whenever I try to sculpt something, it's going to turn into an abomination from Silent Hill, haha! But whenever I do get some clay, I'll try this.

Yours are still better. ;) I have problems with getting the eyes and the shape of the body right.
Anyway, it`s a very nice way to use the clay that`s still left from bigger projects! (That`s why Pearl is pearl-coloured too)

THIS IS SO SO ADORABLE!  Sorry for the all caps, but I practically sqee'd when I saw it.  LOL  I used to have a guinea pig and loved her to death, so I might have to end up making one for myself.  We had several over the years, but the first one we had was by far the tamest and sweetest out of the bunch.

Unfortunately, I havne't been able to keep one for the past few years, live with someone who is allergic to them.  >_<  

Thank you SO SO MUCH for the tutorial, I'd never seen these before, but they are darling.
