The Head

We are spending a lot of time on the tigers head.

The foam still needs more detail and I spend a great deal of time carving and sanding the foam. 
Foundry wax is brushed onto the foam. This gives the clay something to hold onto and makes the removing of the clay much easier.  The clay that is going on this cat has been used in many different projects.  

Each part of the anatomy is looked at very carefully.  Because this sculpture is so large and the face is seen from a distance, an artist must know how to exaggerate features so that they can read when it is complete, in bronze and from a distance. 
The face is taking a tremendous amount of time, but it is what everyone is going to be looking at.
