Find A Wonderful Animal Figurine Sculptor - Articles Surfing
Looking to create something unique? Commissioning an animal figurine sculptor to produce a portrait gives you the chance to immortalize your pet and create a work of art.
An animal figurine sculptor can create the portrait from reference photographs and video footage. The best way to capture a likeness though is for the artist study your pet at home in its own environment.
The artist will probably make several pencil sketches and photographs from life before making a clay sketch for your approval. Once this is done the artist will continue to refine the sketch if it is of the correct dimensions, or will start afresh and scale up the model using the first clay sketch as a guide.
Once the final sculpture is complete it will be molded and cast in whatever material you choose.
Dependent on the material that you choose a variety of finishes will be available. For example a bronze will be polished, patinated and coated in beeswax. A porcelain figurine may be hand painted to match the color and markings of your animal.
Finally the figurine is mounted on a crystal, marble or porcelain plinth.
