Sculpting animals began as a challenge from one of my students and now has become an ongoing muse of what animal can I sculpt next!
So of course a Hedgehog came to mind! They are absolutely adorable and shy with a gentle side.
A few fun facts about Hedgehogs.
The first thing that you notice about a hedgehog is his spikes. It seems as if he is covered from top to toe with tiny little pins.However beneath that rather unapproachable exterior, the hedgehog is really a very shy little creature and if you so much as look at him, he will roll up into a ball and spread out his spikes like a pincushion.With eyes firmly closed and his little nose well tucked in he looks like a prickly ball that you can roll down a hill.But if you can patiently coax him out of his defensive exterior you’ll find that the hedgehog is a sensitive and gentle little creature with sparkling black eyes, a cute nose and a soft cuddly underbelly.Who would guess that he spends most of his life rolled up like a pincushion?
If you have made the bunny and sheep already, you will love making the Hedgehog. If you haven't made either, you'll still love it. Iv'e had students take my sculpting class with no clay experience and were shocked at the end of class that they were able to create a cute little critter out of clay!
I will walk you through each step of sculpting this little Hedgehog.
