Ulrich the Uintatherium
'Ulrich' was my first attempt at sculpting a prehistoric mammal. As said
in the intro, the Zallinger painting and the Starlux figure were used as references, and he ended up cartoony rather than
realistic (which turned out okay).
As with all the Tertiaries, Ulrich is made of white Sculpey, and painted
with acrylic paints. I just use paints such as Ceramcoat, Apple Barrel, and Anita's. These are found at just about any hobby
store, such as Michael's or Hobby Lobby.
I have made several of these guys as of this writing, and Ulrich remains
my favorite. Of course, the Uintatherium has always been my favorite prehistoric mammal. The 'cartoonified' look really
works with this guy, I think.
