Project Horse

The horse sculpture is done using DAS air-dry clay and currently sitting at an unobstrusive corner in my study. It is not varnished yet, and i have plans to spray white paint before spray-coating clear varnish. I am waiting for it to dry completely.

While waiting, i have documented to a large extent, the process. Watch it on Youtube or click on this link:

White Horse

Weighing a few kilos, with a height of about 32 plus cm and with a width of 20 plus cm and one of my favourite projects in my air-dry clay collection is this white horse which took me about 7 hours. Seven hourse of "flow." When it was done, it was 3 plus in the morning. Did not even shower - just washed the clay off my hands, legs and feet and changed into a fresh singlet and shorts. Tired, but satisfied. I wrote seven 'hourse' unconsciously. Haha.

Anyway, here's the process:

1. armature

2. rendering it with white air-dry clay

And the rest is

3. sculpting,
4. rendering the details,
5. refining, comparing it with a picture which i took from the net, refining,
6. waiting for it to dry,
7. refining,
8. rendering the details. There you are.
