If you've always wanted to create life-like animal sculptures, but you thought it would be too hard or too expensive, you're in for a very pleasant surprise. This book contains step-by-step instructions and over 250 photos to guide you through the enjoyable process of making animal sculptures with the author's paper mache clay recipe.
Paper mache clay can be made in just 5 minutes, using inexpensive ingredients - and it air-dries, so you won't need an oven or a kiln. There's no mess, no tedious layers of torn paper strips, and it's easy to add details and textures to your sculpture.
With the patterns included in each chapter, you'll be sculpting animals that are perfectly proportioned, right from the very start. You'll also learn to make your own patterns, so you can go on to create original sculptures of your own.
Sculpting life-like animals has never been so easy, or so much fun!
The sculpting techniques shown in this book have been used by middle school kids, university art students, theater prop-makers, and adults of all ages who have rediscovered their love for sculpting, using methods and materials that are affordable for everyone.
