Helpful hedgehog
This is a great way to use up scraps of lime I was getting from some of my bigger projects. I know it doesn’t look that awe inspiring but it’s quick to cut and the eye and nose are blackened using a pyro tool. Second photo shows how they are used
To date I find it difficult to keep up with demand for these little critters ( and I’m running out of scrap bits)
They always seem to draw people into the sales table at the shows I’ve done
Just an idea for you struggling crafters who like me had a pile of offcuts and an unwillingness to bin them or burn them

Very cool. Thanks for showing how they are used also. I was unfamiliar with helpful hedgehogs. :)
