I'm really pleased at how the posture worked out on this particular figure. I'm no horseback rider, but he looks comfortable and natural for being in a mounted pose, not straight and stiff. As with all my mounted pieces, I completely modeled the entire horse before sculpting and posing the figure, this ensures a tight fit of man and horse.

When I mix putty, I do wear gloves. Not necessarily for safety, but because the mixture can get very sticky, and I would be constantly washing my hands if I was doing this barehanded. I like to dip my fingers in water (I suppose saliva would work also) just to keep the residue down. When finished mixing, I will take the gloves off and start applying putty with sculpting tools and occasionally finger tip.
