Modeling a Likeness in Clay Reviews
This is at once a great starting point for a novice sculptor and an inspiration for the accomplished one. Daisy's easy to comprehend works and common sense approach give you good solid footing and set you on your way to creating work you can be proud to show others. A must have reference for the portrait sculptor!
Love this book.
Great book. Very well written and easy to understand for beginners and advanced students.
I wanted to learn how to sculpt my children, and none of my teachers at the local art center had much guidance to give - they all specialize in wheelthrowing, not sculpture. This book gave me step-by-step instructions to follow, and really got me started terrifically. I just ordered other books (starting with Faraut), but look how far I've come with just this one book!
Mrs Grubbs has lots of talent, being a pedagogue is not the least of them. As she shares her technique with the reader, every step is thoroughly illustrated and commented. Numerous examples of specific situations are shown in detail along with the sculptor's comments.
A valiant effort, but I found this book hard to follow...many of the essential steps seem to be missing...perhaps the book is geered towards only the advanced. I was dissapointed by the characterish results of the approach and was hoping for more of an attempt at "fine" art.
