Sculpting horses in air dry clay

It was very informative and generous with information

This is a helpful little book.

Terrific instruction on how to best apply the material, make armature, dry and finish the clay. Advanced sculpting techniques were helpful. I would like even more guidance to cover all parts of the horse's anatomy, with common misperceptions. I would really love to take a horse sculpting class taught by Susie.

I wish I had known earlier!

A fantastic little book, every page filled with useful information. The photos were great and helped to illustrate the complete process of making a horse. I wish I had known sooner!

Sculpting Book

Great book. I learned a lot. There are, of course, descriptions I would like a video demonstration of, but that goes with all instruction books.

I purchased both books and am very impressed!

I purchased both books and am very impressed with the amount of information. Susie provides tips, troubleshooting, and a lot of information with pictures. I think one of the things I really liked the most in these books were the proportional measuring guides so you can take your sculpture poses beyond the template guides. I am familiar with wire twisting, so the pictures made sense to me. However, for someone struggling to twist the wires, consider wrapping the middle of your wire length around something solid and stable, like a metal table leg or a screw shank sticking out of a piece of wood (get creative here). Then twist the wires around each other tightly (roughly 6-8 wraps per inch is safety-wire standard) and trim to length. If you use an anchor like this, it's much easier to get evenly spaced twists throughout the length of your wire. Hope it helps someone.

Helpful and good value

I liked the straightforward step by step approach and comprehensive information about materials and techniques. It was very handy to have it offered as an eBook so you could download it straight away for a cheaper price than a hardcopy.
