And if you’re interested, here’s how I made it.
Well, this’s not really a tutorial, just some pics I took while making the statue.
First, the pedestal
Then the horse
Add to it some kind of “paper meat” 😆
“paper meat” again
This’s “paper meat”: paper powder + pva glue ^^
Add clothes and decoration
* I used a kind of felt, but you can use paper. It’s just I had the felt and didn’t know what to do with them…
Now it’s ready for another step, take a look at my tools
I use a kind of setting-type joint compound for drywall, mix it with water then coat the statue
When it’s dry, use sand paper to make it smooth
Then paint it black, it’s my experience, I think since I intend to paint it gold, it’s better if the first paint is black than let it white and apply the gold color.
Then paint it gold!
I took that pic in the night cause I had to wait until it was fully dry. So the color’s not beautiful and real. Well, this’s the final result.
