Remembering Our Veterans On Memorial Day 2018



I put this video up over 6 years ago.. thought it appropriate to revisit it today. Just remembering my part in the creation of this memorial to Veterans living and dead. Who gave their lives and futures to this country's survival. To preserve the freedoms our forefathers gave us. I show the monumental bronze I was asked to create for this sacred spot in South West Montana. back in 2001

Creating A Plains Buffalo -Using Urethane Foam To Make a Base



Today I made the base for the Buffalo. Using Taxidermy Foam, Parts A & B Urethane Foam, I made the base and then added clay to the surface of the foam after shaping it. Probably saved me 6 to 10 pounds of expensive clay. I then continued to work on the fur on the face of the Buffalo..

Creating A Plains Buffalo Back to the Stone Age Tools



Just texture experimenting today with rocks from my driveway. Got my Ball Peen Hammer and broke a couple of rock to get a rough surface for texturing the thick fur on the Buffalo.. You can utilize a lot of objects as make sculpting tools.

How to Build a Box to Soften Your Plasticine Clay



I made this video years ago.. I thought it would be useful to re-publish it.

Creating A Plains Buffalo Continuing to work on the Massive Head



The fact that the left side of my face is recovering from Paralysis of the facial muscles.. has effected my ability to sculpt. My left eye still doesn't blink completely.. so at times it feels like needles sticking me in the eye.. It's gotten a ton better.. but still bothers me to the point to where I'm unable to see what I'm working on. Today was a fairly good day. I continued working on the right side of the Buffalo's head, and then started working back to the shoulders.
