This was a custom order for a childs' 2nd birthday. The childs' name is Christian and the birthday party theme was the Zoo. Hope you like 'em.

I had a heck of a time trying to fit the name on the frame, I am using different alphabet cutouts/molds than I normally do but I think it turned out ok. You can't see it too well but I actually interlocked each of the letters by cutting out the overlapping clay parts. Smiley

Thanks for looking!

those look great!  I love the animals...  did you use a mold or did you craft them by hand-- For some reason I am fine if I do a three dimensional animal, but the minute I try to make them flat, they look all wonky and I end up very very sad..   I don't really like the molds though because they look like a mold ( Tongue I know that is a little obvious but perhaps you understand what i mean).   But really great job, I'm sure it was appreciated!

I did use a mold for the letters, I made the mold from some little magnetic letters alphabet letters I have on my fridge for my godson to spell words with. As for the little animals....ALL by hand. No molds just a fancy imagination and a little bit of practice. Thanks for looking! Smiley

Snootzie, one cheatie way to make bas-relief sculpts of animals (or anything) could also be to go ahead and make them 3-D, then cool well (preferably overnight), and slice off the whole front part  of the sculpt (or the side, or whichever face of the sculpt you'd like to show).  The "slice" should be as thick as you would want the whole bas relief to be.

If the animal or object has legs or other parts that are farther back and wouldn't be included in the slice, you can cut part of them off and apply them to the front of the sculpt before slicing, or after... it could get a little tricky, but just go by the "flat image" you'd see when you look at the facet you want to show (...you could even scan or photograph your sculpt, then print out, and look at it like puzzle pieces, not 3-D... cut out the farther-back puzzle pieces, and move them forward, or add later).

You'd have a bunch of leftover clay that you could separate in to color families or just mix together as "mud" but it might get you started in understanding how to do them from scratch later??
