I am planning to sculpt a Rabbid Rabbit. Yes, A Rabbid Rabbit.
This is because I have never done this before and I am familiar with the model. I plan on using whatever I find about the house for base, probably papermache. Then put clay over that, and sculpt the details.
Sounds easy enough, does it not? I'm sure there are pitfalls waiting anyways.
I have no real prop building experience, I do however posses a lot of theoretical ideas due to reading lots and lots of DIY posts and papers.
No experience with the clay but for making some simple easter ornaments.
I must be mindful of:
*I have little to no budget, So I have to improvise with tools and how-to's. I do have some plastic clay shapers.
*Of the strength and moist resistance of the Base. If it warps under the weight of the clay, the model will be ruined.
*I must remember to work in layers, and not rush it.
