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!

Maybe this will help. It's a tutorial on how to carve a converse shoe but it might help you get the general idea on the shape of the "foot" part and then you just have to extend the "leg" part of the boot (hope I'm making sense icon_lol.gif).

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. icon_smile.gif

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.
