Clay skier" by Maker dragonfly5 on DIY.

The first cave sculptures were of people and animals. Making the human figure has been the main challenge of sculptors through history – that instinct is still strong. Figure sculpture can still be seen in action figures, movie creatures, dolls, and monuments. This project solves a challenge for the Sculptor Skill.

Challenge of the Day: Make a Scale Model

Some ideas in movies are just too big and expensive to make normal size. That’s when artists are employed to make a miniature version of scenes – on camera they look full size! The challenge is to very carefully shrink things down to 1/2, 1/10 or even 1/100 scale.
