One of those skills is sculpting. I have been following the advice of Rayvin Brewer, Sara Gifford, Kristy Thiessen, Shauna McDaniel and Morgan Haberman when it comes to sculpting and recently tried my hand at it again.
I took 2 Breyer Stablemate (1:32 scale) G1 American Saddlebreds and began working.
First I sanded off their old manes and tails.
Then I added wire and using blue painter's tape made my tail "base."
Then I used my Magic Sculpt and began sculpting.
I have now finished both models and painted them. They are not perfect but they are definitely better than things I have sculpted before. And I just need to keep working on them.
