A rasp and a Sawzall were used to shape the Styrofoam armature of this little doggie.  Pretty simple process but those little Styrofoam balls stick with static to everything. Pesky.

My helpful critics (whether I ask or not) – seemed a bit worried at the look of the fella at this stage.  I am sure Cliff and Paul thought the sculpture looked too puny.  BUT the Styrofoam is simply an armature for the clay – thus it must be smaller than the final critter.
