Love it! Try using transparent clay for the stripes on the bacon. Love the realistic coloring on the sausage!

Oh my goodness, if I ever achieve egg and bacon like that I'll be floored. The whole thing is amazing - what did you use to texture the toast? This is perfect!!!

How come the penny has an Irish harp and Welsh dragon feet on it? Has the dragon fallen off his box as the photo was being taken? And what about England and Scotland? I know you're not allowed to say 'England' any more, but they can't get me :rofl:

OK here goes. The penny was part of a series of coins which together showed a coat of arms. If I can ever get them all together I will photograph and let you see. The toast was textured with an old toothbrush. If I had to do it again I would use sandpaper for a more varied depth to the indentations.

England, England, England. There I've said it. It was a bit politically incorrect at one time but I think that reason prevailed for a change. It is still "not done" to celebrate St George's day, but St Patricks day is obligatory.

Thank you so much for the info about the coins - I've forwarded the URL to David because he will be interested too.

Oh, that's interesting to see the toothbrush effect. I've seen those, sandpaper and crumpled aluminium foil all mentioned separately for texturing - and the dress-making pin for cake slices. It's amazing what gets used for polyclay.

Poor old Blightey, she's not popular is she?

Referring to your last sentence, of course now Maggie has gone, and they are all having ago at her and how she ruined the country.

Was ever a PM praised and loved? I have no preference, I'm just wondering. Churchill maybe, perhaps? I'm a bit young to know - as are you!

Nice compliment. I do remember Churchills death and funeral.

I remember the funeral going on, and on, and on - or so it seemed to me. He was my first Person of Importance to die as far as I can remember.
