Item details

Detailed and realistic, this horse head is ready to be painted any color desired. I recommend dunking it in water first as it is quite "thirsty" and will absorb the paint, perhaps turning darker than intended. It tends to be a little front heavy, I would mount it on a base once done painting.
* 3.5" tall
* 6.25" long
* 2" wide
* one-of-a-kind
I sculpted this horse out of white earthenware clay using many different photos as references. When the basic form was made, I hollowed it out to the proper thickness for firing.
I cut the opening for the eyes. I then made two balls for the eyes, let them harden a bit and put them up inside he head, behind the eyelids(openings). Then I added more soft clay behind the eyeballs to hold the eyes in place.
After the shape was complete I etched the mane, inside the ears and the eyelashes. Then I touched up the eyelids with a small brush, smoothing any rough edges. I used a stiff brush to apply the hair texture. When it was dry, it was fired.
