Meg's small model for a six foot tall black granite panther was approved by the committee at the University of Northern Iowa and so she has to create a a
3-1 model (meaning the stone sculpture will be 3 times the size of the model)
The basic frame of the sculpture is created from pink foam on a wood base.

Plasteline clay (which is oil based and never drys out) is applied over the pink foam. The smaller panther acts as a guide.

The finished clay sculpture. It will be cast in plastic so that it will stand up to the harsh environment of the stone carving studio. It will be able to put up with handling without distortion or breaking.

The panther carved, though needing refinement. The back
corner needs to be bevelled.

The panther is more fully carved, just needing a polish
