He's lovely Smiley I too am curious about scale and would like a back view please.

Why a marmot? why are marmots suddenly so popular? Tankspot much? (if you have no clue what that is then the answer is no)

This is just awesome.  I would love to have a few of these hiding under a bush in the back garden.  Hmmmm, I think I have an idea!  An ARMY of the little buggers just hiding behind/under things in the yard!  LOL. Shocked

I want to do it AAAAALLLLLLL, I just don't know where to start.

so it's the kind of clay that does not harden?

Yes, that clay doesn't harden. It melts if you put it to oven but with controlling temperature you can make it harder or softer. That can be useful sometimes.

Are you going to try your hand sometime at sculpting with polymer clay or with epoxy clay too ?

Maybe Smiley That marmot is really my first sculp but that was kind of fun so maybe. I like scale models in movies. Now days they make those really often in 3D so thats boring.

Thanks for the link Wink Im thinking if that Prr is his real name because it means like furry Smiley

I googled Tankspot and find out that's some game. I have never played that Smiley
I don't know isn't marmots popular. If you try find information of something then it can looks like almost everything is popular. It's probably because internet is full of everything Smiley But that might be true what you said. My favourite animal before marmot was guinea-pic and those are 2nd most funniest animals I know. I like marmots behaviour and how they like to be, whole family in same area. Like friends together. And they are mostly vegetarians like me but they are for different reasons of course Cheesy I am quite green so marmots and other hibernating animals get my sympathy. If it's not real winter they don't hibernate and they don't still get enough food because is winter. Like what happend for bees last winter, I have heard. I didn't get almost any huckleberries in this summer Sad Vancouver Island Marmots are close of extinction so that's bad. It's not probably world biggest problem but I biggest for those marmots Smiley And everything effects everything in this biodiversity. And of course they are so CUTE! Grin

Narnia, yes, I noticed that and my class mates said same think Smiley

Here is more of my marmot. I will remove equipments when I make the mold. It make molding easier and then I more carving like or something.

It's about 6" high and you can compare it to that dandelion.

Here is back-side. That's not how marmots tail looks like but it's not mean to look from this direction.


Marmots use most of time for eating and rest of for sleeping

Dude! Have you seen this womans gargoyle? She has a link to her website and she has detailed instructions on how she makes a latex mold and then casts it in hydrostone. Hydrostone would be so much bettter than wax. Think about it.


You did a great job of carving your little friend. I think you should do more sculpting. I know nothing of marmots but yours is really cute.
