This workshop is for intermediate and advanced students. Students will be sculpting bas-relief style horse heads, hedgehog beads, and various sea life beads.

Breaking down the shapes and how to apply those shapes to sculpting in a bas-relief or low-relief style will be covered. An overview of various animal anatomies will be discussed to help you create realistic and life-like low-relief animal and sea life beads. Students will also learn how to use specialty dental tools to facilitate and ease sculpting in a low-relief style as well as 3-D subject matter. Some photo and diagram references will be provided to the students to better illustrate shape, anatomy, and composition breakdown.
