I'm posting this video to remind everyone that I do have Instructional DVDs for sale. Money from these sales makes it possible for me to continue posting videos of me creating artwork in clay and eventually into bronze.

After letting the wax on the loin cloth to set up and cool. I then started adding clay to the waxed rag. Once that sets then I'll go over the cloth and touch it up.. Next step is to take quality photos of the clay for Promotional Purposes.

Finished up attaching the Bow Quiver to his back. Then it was time to melt wax and make a loin cloth. If you're under the age of 21, do not mess with melted wax. I'm warning you, you can give yourself some very sever burns. Since I'm 71 years old.. I figured I was old enough to do this part on my own.
I had the bow and quiver laying on the ground. He ran out of arrows and dropped them. I thought that it might be confusing for viewers of the clay or the finished bronze, as to what was that on the ground. So I decided, better to have it on him empty, than a pile on the ground.

Finished up the small clay of "Sitting Bull". A Hunkpapa Lakota holy man who led his people during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him, at a time when authorities feared that he would join the Ghost Dance movement. This small clay is an attempt to capture his image.

The Viking is one of my Instructional DVDs I have available. I made this bust a while back. Thought it was time to get a bid from the foundry on how much it would cost to re-produce if I decided to. So I cleaned it up a bit. Didn't take long because it was already mostly done.

Putting the finishing touches on the clay of "TROUBLEMAKER". This will be a limited edition bronze. I'll be taking the clay to the foundry on Tuesday.
