HUGE ANGRY BIRDS SLINGSHOT coming up..
There is two about 2 meter long logs inside this sculpture.
This slingshot will be used for shooting, so it needs to take a lot of pressure from pulling the rubber band.
Snow is one of my favorite building material.
There is many ways to make sculptures from snow, but I think the most effective way of building is to fill up a mold.
These plywood molds are so fast and fun way of making the sculptures.
Sure you must wait few days before engraving and shaping these snow blocks, but if you have time about an week, the results will amaze you.
Snow blocks has to be quite compact because shaping them with blades and saw, can cause collapsing and EPIC failure.
“SNOW, SNOW AND MORE SNOW…”
As a sculpting material, snow has really different attribute than clay.
There is way of making unbelievable art from snow, but you have to be really careful.
There is no shortcut for happiness in snow sculpting.
If you are too greedy with cutting, collapse is the only result what you have.
Living on the north side of the Arctic circle gives an advance in this hobby, because weather stays below the zero, so yeah, it’s cold…
Those blocks from the pictures are made for sculpting.
Rest is up to sculptors imagination.
When snow freezes, it turns quite tough.
But tougher it is, easier to work with.
When you are working outdoors in freezing weather, you need to be prepared well.
At the daytime sun is giving a nice warm touch to your cheeks, but facial hair will get frozen at the progress.
Still it’s really fun activity to do.
I think we have about 50 centimeters of snow right at the moment, so building material you have more than enough.
Every winter I’m building a snow castle for kiddos.
Sure there is a room where to make outdoor barbecue, for adults you know.
Then I carry my barbecue fireplace inside and its done.
On the bright side, if you like the cold drinks, you don’t have to make an effort to cool ‘em down.
If you ever have an opportunity to try this art form, I really, really recommend it.
“Snow therapy” is the best kind of therapy at the winter time.
Every clay sculptor out there, GO FOR SNOW!
At the moment there is about -20C° and bit windy, so these blocks and slingshot will toughen pretty fast.
Stay warm people and cuddle yourselves.
