Simple Horse Head Sculpture [Gallery]

Simple Horse Heads

Rainbows of Equine Abstraction!

Of all the plaster casting galleries, this one was the hardest to sort out. I didn’t keep the best records for these guys so the numbering is based on when they appeared in my phosts and is  approximate at best.

This was the very first ‘large’ horse head that I sculpted. I used it as a test in all of my molding and casting experiments. It was simple and stylized in order to make that casting as simple as possible and was made without using any references. It’s an unfiltered glimpse into what my brain thinks horses should look like! 😉

Plaster Cast and Second Mold

A bit of a learning curve…

The stylized (or ‘simple’) horse head was intended to be a push mold for sculpey casts that I could then modify with different manes and easily customize. Since the silicone molds were too soft for this to work well, I ended up using it as a plaster mold instead… and discovered the fun that is painting with plaster!

As you can see I ended up making a cast of the head with a pre-sculpted mane, just for simplicities sake, but I do still play around with the casts. I’ve figured out how to add reinforcements to the unicorn horse (paperclips or toothpicks) so those may make a comeback as well.
