The Finished Ram

Here’s the finished ram, drying on top of the kiln with his future kiln buddies.  I’m just going to keep sculpting until I have a pretty full kiln load, then it will be back to painting or drawing for a while.

To texture the fur, I used an angled mini cut-out tool and made short squiggly lines.  I think it worked out pretty well, but my search for the perfect sheep coat is still on.

I tried to make my own tool, but was unsuccessful.  The problems I had relate to it needing to be so small.  So far, I haven’t found a good material to make the “loop” from and haven’t been able to get the shape right with the materials I’ve tried.  But I’ll keep searching for the answer.
