In these pages I will be explaining how I go about making a wildlife sculpture and later on some other subjects.
|Get a picture of the animal you want to model, and enlarge or reduce it with a photocopy machine. Put it on a block of foam and draw around it. Mark a line one quarter inch inside this outline. Cut this shape out and rasp it to shape. To start a model of any animal first cut the basic shape from a block of polyurethane foam. Push in some bronze rods for the legs, make sure the bends correspond to the joints in the bones, and solder them in place.|
|Start applying modeling clay or plasticine to the wire on the legs.|
|Keep adding modeling compound.|
|Put a layer over the body.|
