Wax horse sculptures
 
Here are two sculptures made from Babybel cheese wax! I started sculpting with wax last summer and it works surprisingly well because it's so easy to reshape. These are about 3 inches tall, or the size of a Breyer Stablemate. :)

The first sculpture is completely re-sculpted from the running thoroughbred it used to be, and the second one has a couple changes made to the pose.

You should email these pictures to the babybel cheese company. They might give you free cheese for a year or something. These are creative!

Lol, I wish they would! I've been wanting to make more but they each take about 6 or 7 Babybel wrappers to make, and as a broke college student I don't have any money to spend on expensive cheese. XD

It's pretty fun googling Babybel wax sculptures though, there are a lot of really creative things people have made with it!

Thanks everyone for the comments!

Unfortunately, since the sculptures have such thin legs they eventually bend and fall over, so I'm thinking of trying a draft horse next time.

I love these!!
How many babybels did you have to eat? :lol:

Those are amazing! You must've eaten a lot of cheese... xD

Wow, love it :) Is there a way to "dry" wax to make the legs a little more rigid?
