Iron Horn - Monumental - 1st Clay

Started putting clay on the foam today. I start with the piece on my elevated turn table. I built this table years ago. I've used it for both this type of work and for models to pose on. It has a 12 inch lazy Susan between the box and the platform. It's very useful.
I start on the feet and work up.

Once I have the right foot finished, I start on the legging. I roll pieces of clay to form the wrinkles in the leather.

This is where the leg was at the end of the day.

Tomorrow I continue on the right foot and leg and start the left foot and leg. This is starting to get fun. Anyone want to help...? haha
