No horse without legs! And four of them of course, although I have done some horses with eight legs like Sleipner and The Vitruvian Sleipner. The legs are made of bamboo sticks that I covered with black clay.
To fasten them securely and also make a smooth transition between the body and legs, I used more black clay that I smoothed out against both the body and the long legs. For the smoothing I used different clay tools and my hands and fingers.
Now, I also spent a lot of time to make the body smooth, in order to prepare it for the application of ”mane and tail” you will see more of in the next blog post.
