Horse Play is a unique hand sculpted horse sculpture. He is a perky foal, with a fun bearing, ready to find some adventure or horsey trouble. He is almost teasing you to come over and test his cleverness. I use a very special nylon fiber infused ceramic clay which is very hard when fired. I first sculpt a thick inner hollow armature using four heavy steel legs and a wire for the head, neck and tail. When this is completely bone dry I sculpt the shape of the horse adding detail and textures. Each horse is a one-of-a-kind. When completely dry, I add any additions to make him exactly the way I want. I Kiln fire and keep the horses in the kiln for 24 hours to make sure the firing and cooling are perfect. After firing I sculpt additional details with Apoxie clay which dries very hard. I use top quality acrylic paints in blues, turquoises, and iridescent colors, and finish with layers of clear coat. Horse Play would love to come home with you!
