I am making aHhorse Head mask to fit over a human head. Note that I am using two colours of clay,
The grey clay to give me guidelines, structure and temporary support under the muzzle, then the red clay to build the animal.
I aim to get a sense of the skeletal structure first after which I search for the animal and the final stage will be to find the character of the creature.
The ears I shall add at the end which may be separate leather ears, likewise, I may make the mane in a similar fashion. Not decided as yet.
The neck has to be thick to fit over the human head but it looks far thicker, at present, than a horse would be, another conundrum to resolve.
