This is good project or beginners and anyone who likes lions. Working with self-hardening, water-based clay, I show how to sculpt a complete lion's face and mane. For information about me and what I create, please visit my website at

Great looking sculpture!

Thank you. I really like to sculpt clay and it is a lot of fun teaching people too. The video helps people to see how the lion come from the clay - it makes understanding the sculpting process something they can grasp. Then it is just a matter of a little practice and people are on their way creating beautiful things. Thanks again for your comment.

Thank you! And the appreciation for the sculpture increases when you know how to make one. Will you be trying it soon? :-)

You can do this and it so much fun. And you can up size and down size the same sculpting method to make miniatures and big ones too. Below are pictures of other lion heads I have made. This video is really great. Check it out please. And if you ever have any questions, just let me know. -Jacob Folger, Sculptor
