Down from the High Lonesome (p16) Still Working on the Base

This base is turning into a career all it's own. The foam had finally set up to where I could finally carve it. Photos below shows this exciting procedure.

I had to let the clay soften for an hour or two. I had wax under the lamp because I was going to work on the figures yesterday and forgot to change out to the clay. When it finally softened, I started covering the foam. The base is taking shape.

Tomorrow I move onto the horses. I'll be removing the figures, because I'm planning on redoing them.
