are there any tutorials for making a standing cowboy boot? Or could any one give me any tips? There are many nice pictures on here, so I know some of you have done some beautiful ones!
Hi, I've just today added this to my favourites from KathysCC:
I hope this is what you were after?
Good point CandyCU. I just assumed the OP was looking for a carved boot cake. Could be she was looking for gp boots.
the carved cake boot is what I was looking for. I didnt know if I needed support or not. The video was helpful. They used no support , but used a mud cake (?). I never have good success sculpting cakes...they sink. Is there a certain recipe I should use?
Thank you all for your help.
You need a dense cake for carving. Pound cakes usually work really well.
See this thread for a discussion of this kind of cake
hint -- build base from wood (use shaped wood block for heal) -- that is unless you can get a real boot heal)
then add long dowel.
then stack and carve.
