These guys are going to be done by Christmas, I promise – but it’s been a slow process.
(My couch-eating 60-pound puppy isn’t really helping much, either… It’s hard to work in the studio when you have a toddler in the house. 😄)
The next time I do something like this it will go a lot faster, I’m sure. If you’d like to see more figure sculptures, be sure to let me know in the comments below.
After I get them finished I’ll put together a blog post with screen shots and step-by-step instructions, to make it easier to follow. It might not be done in time for this Christmas, but it will give you plenty of time to get yours done for next year.
BTW – when you make yours, will you dress them in the Three Kings style, with bright colors and lots of bling, or do you prefer the plain and simple Zoroastrian priest idea? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject, so please leave a comment and let us know.
