Making A Clay Sculpture Of Horatio


Wire, newspaper and masking tape sculptured to form the under-layers of a Horatio clay sculpture.


Next, the under-layers are covered with air-dry clay, left to dry and then painted with acrylic paint.



Lastly, Horatio's clothes and glasses were made from fabric, wool, felt and wire then added. He wasn't so stable on his feet with his shoes on so we left them off. Not to bad for my first time making a clay model!
