Hello, everyone! This past weekend I've been in "Sculpture 101 at Caswell Gallery and Firebird Bronze" and I have two more weeks left!
This first week has all been about using a mixture of half clay and half wax to create a miniature sculpture and I chose by beloved Golden Retriever, Ginger (she passed away in 2009).
I've sculpted very little before this class. I did an Indian bust at Linn-Benton Community College many years ago for a class. And this is it …
Sadly, I don't quite remember what happened to it when I moved in with my husband, but I think my mom might still have it …. somewhere.
Anyways, moving on to Ginger. I brought some of the few good photos I have of her in her "golden years" …. hahaha. She was a red Golden and they loving with a shorter length coat. Here is my progression of working on her for the past week.
Almost 2 hours of work:
About 3 hours in ….
A little over 3 hours ...
A good 3 ½ to 4 hours and I'm done!
