Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Give(s) in detail every process and method of the sculptor's craft with a fullness to be found in no other works."—Encyclopedia Britannica
A student of the great Edouard Lanteri and a celebrated sculptor in his own right, Albert Toft created this manual to offer students every practical detail necessary for a complete knowledge of modeling and sculpture. Both professionals and amateurs will find Toft's experienced guidance a valuable help in surmounting difficulties and avoiding errors. Topics include:
•Modelling a portrait bust
•Casting
•Modelling for terra-cotta, in relief, and for bronze
•Modelling in clay as a prelude to working in stone and wood
Thirty-six plates and eighty-two line illustrations enhance this manual, and a helpful glossary defines the most common terms.

Format: Paperback
This guy was a student of Edouard Lanteri & i reckon Lanteri's book is better. This fellow waffles on a fair bit but his techniques are good & you can learn a lot from it regarding making traditional sculpture. The info is slightly different from lanteri's book so you get a slightly different viewpoint on the same techniques & the pictures are good. Its a good basic book of how to. However i'd recommend the Lanteri book over this one if you can only buy one book.
