    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.

    So I sketched the idea, had to fix the troubled relationship between my multi printer/scanner and the old worn out laptop, but here the sketch is! I guess now I should get the scale and proportion planned down before sculpting.

    What sort of clay will you use?

    So, got to cut my slack now.

    Have been taking measurements of bunny, Used these to make a template. Will use the template to create the "inner bunny".

    Then clay.
