some quick updates….

truly ridiculous – have 4 different jointed figures going at the moment.
Bug is in molding for resin casting,
the bjd horse is mostly a pipedream – with the first junk casts done to try to clean up and get working (really, REALLY didn’t like the wax I used for that figure)
the contortionist (2 faced child) has the beginnings of a torso – just roughed in, to work on getting the torso to curve around enough
2 faced child with beginnings of torso
2 faced child with beginnings of torso

and a little mermaid in the hopefully seahorse manner – is just started – some folk on the bjdartists.com forum proposed a sculpt every day challenge for december – and i started the mermaid for that…. I intended to do a simple child with tail – but that isn’t how she is going….

now lets see what actually gets worked on!
