Stampeding Horses Update in Less Than Two Minutes

I've decided not to add any more horses to this piece. I feel anymore would be to much. I'll be making me a jig to work on each horse head seperate from their necks. It just makes it easier to work on them individually. I'll try and figure out how I'll make that work over the next day.

Stampeding Horses Finished the Horse Armatures and Adding two of them

Spent Friday evening and Saturday afternoon working on 4 more small horse armatures. This evening I added two of the 4 horses to the sculpture.. I'm liking how this piece is turning out. Still not sure if it will turn out though. I'm thinking that when it comes to revisiting the horses already blocked in, I might work on their heads separate from their bodies.

Stampeding Horses Added Two More Horses Today

I had two more horses in the wax stage to add to the herd. I am liking how this is looking.. Details well be added once I get the design worked out.. So I'll be getting at least 3 more horse armatures ready for next time..

Stampeding Horses - Fleshing In the First Horse in Wax and then Clay

I started today on the first of the horses, already partially in wax, and got to a point where i decided to use clay on top of the wax. Just easier to see detail in the light colored clay. Wax is a great medium to work in.. It's very temperamental to work with though. Clay is softer but easier to form.

Stampeding Horses Adding The First Wax To The Armatures

I got all seven of the horse armatures ready to have wax applied to them. Wax is like clay.. just very dark, so it makes seeing detail hard.. and the dang stuff is sticky if to warm.

Stampeding Horses - Starting the Wire Armatures

Today I'm starting the wire armatures for 7 horses. I'll make the armatures out of Bailing Wire. Google "Bailing Wire" to order you some. Every sculptor needs this in their studio.

Stampeding Horses -The Start of a New Sculpture

Had an idea for a new piece. I herd of Stampeding Horses coming down out of the air and touching the ground... It's pushing the envelope time.. Today I start part of the supporting armature.
