A big natural white clay school and freetime project. 15-20 hours of work, about 7-10kg of fresh clay and patience :)

The characters are about 5-7cm high, about hte size of warhammer figures. The woolly mammoth is about 20-25cm high when standing on terrain.

Making the men was very hard because soft clay is hard to make precise shapes and bit dryer gets very fragile. I had to make the basic shape and pose when it was still soft and then let it dry some time (next day) Then I carefully carved the final shape and made "fur texturing" to their clothes. Making heads and faces of that size was just too hard to do so I made them hooded jackets :)

The woolly mammoth and men are currently being burned/cooked whatever, the terrain is not yet completely dry so I must take it home and let it dry on holiday. And when school begins again next year burn it to it's final bright white appearance.

After the first burning I think I'm going to paint the mammoth and men brown of some sort, the snowy landscape will be just bright white, as it will be after burning.

Spears are also going to be painted and finished later.

Would have done a progress/worklog too if I had a digital camera, these photos are taken with my big brother's cam. Took the pictures now because there is allways a risk of cracking and other nasty destruction when being burned etc.

See and vote the other pictures too :)
