Clay Figures Completed
This is about as far as I’m going to need to go with the clay figures so that I’ll be able to use it as a model for the wood carving of the little racing hounds.
The driver is leaning forward pretty nicely as he cuts through the wind, while the passenger/navigator seems to be just enjoying the motion and the breeze while howling away! The driver’s left hand will be on an external handle while his right hand will be perched up on top of the steering wheel. Both dogs will have their ears blowing in the wind…and, I just reminded myself I wanted to have them wearing scarves…so, I’ll need to add that quickly to the clay sculptures.
Next stop is cutting the blanks out on the bandsaw. Although their arms will be well supported, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to do their arms separately so that I can ensure that the wood grain is going in the strongest direction.
