Since I live in horse country, why not try sculpting a horse? Of course, I wanted to sculpt something unique as well. I did a quick web search and most horse sculptures had very similar poses and styles. I thought it would be cool to see a horse bursting through flames. Then while building up the sculpture, I thought about doing an opposing horse made of water. This eventually led me to the idea of making horses that represent all the the elements. This was something of an experiment as I have never sculpted a horse before, and never used this type of clay. I ran out of my Monster Clay so I had to go buy something locally to hold me over. This plastalina clay is a litle softer than I like, but it also allows me to work faster. I plan on casting a limited run of these, possibly in bronze.
