57 7 MODELLING FIG. 10. I N relation to carving, which is removing superfluous material carefully with chisels (thus uncovering a conception), modelling is directly the opposite : it is a method of building up the conceived form with a malleable material, using the thumb and hands and sometimes also employing various tools to lay on, spread or cut off the material. Again, as in the case of stone carving, this is governed by drawing, or a thorough knowledge of the form one wishes to express.
