I’ve been working on sculptures more than ever lately, and this is my most recent horse. I wanted to make a strong, stocky draft horse this time. I tried to give him some heft and weight, especially through the powerful neck and in the legs. I wasn’t sure how to handle the mane to give this horse a showy draft horse feel, but found a great string of beads to attach for the mane.
I used a jewelry/metal glue in some areas of this sculpture. I’ve never used it before, but it seems to work nicely. Of course, I always prefer to wire things together because it’s more durable in the long run. I had to almost sew the mane to the neck with fine wire to get it to stay put and stand upright rather than flop, but I think it was worth the effort.
The tail was made with various lengths, weights, and styles of chains. I gave this horse a shorter tail, as most draft horses have small tails.
– Made with 17 gauge steel fencing wire, fine craft wire for attaching some things, and various found items and chain.
– Measures 8 inches long by 7 inches tall by 3 inches wide.
Thank you for looking. 🙂
