Fabulous transaction

Saw this online and wanted it immediately so, so happy when I saw I could download then and there. Instructions look easy to follow and lots of pictures, bought everything just need to have a go now. Did checkout online to see if you do any video tutorials but couldn’t find any?

Very good introduction into sculpting horses in air-dry clay

I really appreciated the booklet. It gives tons of information for starting out in air-dry clay, handling, storing, and drying it, and how to minimize cracking. It also has a section about how to make armatures and attach them to bases. Theres a very detailed and helpful chapter about how to sculpt the horse's head, and some ideas for creating tails. The booklet also goes into how the sculpture could be painted and varnished. The last page gives some overview into common problems, and possible solutions for them. Susie Benes makes me want to try out air-dry clay for myself!

An amazing medium to work with

I have always drawn and painted, so sculpting is relatively new to me and the first 2 sculptures I made were out of polymer clay which is much harder to work with as well as easily breakable. Sooo after buying this ebook I delved into the wonderful world of paper clay! :) Thank you for your sharing your knowledge and experience. You opened up a whole new world for me and I'm sure many others as well.

The ABCs: Awesome Benes Clay style :)

I recently wanted to try something different in my personal work and stumbled across this resource as well as the work of Susie Benes. The book is excellent! I am so excited by what is happening in my little studio. The directions and guidance are easy to understand and her work is so inspiring, I had to try it. And I am thrilled I did. I could not recommend this more!
