After deciding on the size and pose of the horse, I cut all the flat pieces for the pelvis, shoulder blades and backbone out of PVC trim board.

Step 2:

I used various sizes of PVC pipe for all the leg pieces. Each bone was heated with a heat gun in order to bend and Shape them. The legs all have a PVC pipe in the center for stability with larger pipes placed on it. The ribs are PVC pipe cut length wise into four pieces.

Step 3:

The ends of each pipe was filled and shaped with PVC board and spray foam. Then the joins where wrapped with resin casting tape.

Amazing! How much much did it cost to create the horse aside from your time? Great job for sure!

I used a lot of old PVC pipe I already had but if I were to guess, I would say $65 to $75 dollars. The PVC trim board was the most expensive at around $35 followed by the foam and PVC pipe. The resin tape was purchased on clearance. The best part is I had enough left over to make the Zombie Wolf.
