Elk-Starter Casts™

Description: Available for sale are two one-sixth life-size elk Starter Casts.™ We offer both a larger male elk bull and a smaller female elk cow casts (cow not shown).  The dry and hard casts are in halves (front and back) in proportion, but minimal in detail, ready for trim and assembly. As you can see, the assembled sculpture will be hollow inside, making it strong, but lightweight. Some Project Lessons™ or the “Creating Prairie Edge Hunt” DVD is recommended for even advanced artists who are new to the Eckman Method®.

You will need to order EFA paper and bonding agent to assemble the casts and to pose, alter and/or smooth the sculptures.  You will also need hard paper and board to detail them.  Allen Eckman has also transformed these casts into moose, deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and more, using the altered cast technique he developed.

It is amazing to see how easy these casts can be transformed into many different hoofed animals. Below are a few examples of Allen Eckman’s work to show how a Starter Cast™ can be posed and detailed to finish. E-mail or call us if you have any questions about what you want to do and what art materials you need to accomplish your project. Notice that the sizes are different to reflect the size difference between the bull elk and the cow.

Elk Bull cast is 12″ high and 14″ long

Elk Cow cast is 11″ high and 12″ long
