Winty, I did a web search and found this site - scroll down and there's a section on concrete. I haven't read the info myself so I'm not sure how good it is, but here you go:

Re: Informative Sculpture Website Link

Hey Lynda -
I just discovered this site yesterday and am pleased to meet up with you again (we just took a worshop at the Scottsdale Artists School earlier this month). I really admire your horses and I'll have to attempt making one one of these days. Hope it doesn't turn out looking like a dog!
This is my first post in the Sculpture forum and I look forward to meeting the others here. Anyway, if anyone out there is interested (pardon me for the plug, but I couldn't resist), I have a how to ebook available from my site Portrait sculpture ebook and from www.sculpt.com that details ceramic portrait sculpture (modeling, drying, firing, patination, moldmaking, casting, basemaking, etc.) - 192 pages, 350 color photos.

Hi, Heidi! I haven't had a chance to read your book yet -- been busy finishing a horse to be sent to the foundry Monday so it will be bronze in time for my first show the end of March. Have you looked through my book yet? (equal time : http://www.thesculptedhorse.com/book.html. I hope it helps you with your horse! (The Compleat Sculptor is supposed to have it as well, but may be sold out by now - note to self: check on that!) Meanwhile, I've gotten involved with the Weekend Sculpture Challenge (there's a thread on it here somewhere) and am currently busy making my first birk, a snowy owl. It's a lot of fun! I was getting tired of doing horse legs anyway -- I'm at the legs on another sculpture and just finished them on "Frolic" (http://www.thesculptedhorse.com/frolic.html) so I'm tired of horse legs right now. All those nice rounded forms of the owl are lots of fun to sculpt! I have to take new pics of "Frolic" now that he's finished, and of my owl in progress and get them online. Busy busy busy!! Nice to see you here! I hang out here and at the "Animals and Wildlife" and the "Art Business" forums mostly.

Lynda,
I started reading your book and several others that I just got on human anatomy, but haven't gotten very far. January has been a crazy month for me too with commissions - which is great. Nice to be able to keep busy doing what we love. Have fun with your owl!

I had a lot of fun with the owl, despite only getting 2 1/2 hours to work on him. I've got pics of him on a thread marked "WSC Owl" or something like that -- it's the only thread in the Sculpture forum I've started in a long time, so it should be easy to find. He's a cutie, that owl -- now I'm thinking of doing some chipmunks (I loved doing the one that's on my cougar) -- just small pieces like this owl, making little tiny bronzes that aren't too expensive and are cute and interesting. Sure was a lot faster to sculpt the owl than it is to do my horses! NO LEGS!! YAY!!! (getting four hooves to match in size and be the proper shape and all that is a lot harder than it looks!!)

Lynda

Re: Informative Sculpture Website Link

this is a step by step of an incredible sculptor, making a concept maquette of a creature. from concept drawing to modelling to painting, the detail in this is ridiculous. fun to see it develope. unfortunately this is posted in a forum so it's a pain to scroll through endless posts but what is posted by the sculptor is well worth a look.

Re: Informative Sculpture Website Link

I'm not sure if anyone can use this, but I made a wing tutorial for sculpted clay wings. Its on my website if you would like to view it. I tried to upload the photos, but they are too large.

You can click on each thumnail for a full size view. I would love to hear what you think. I started sculpting last October. I also have WIP photos on my site. Talk to you soon, Cheri
