back from family trips, time to start working.
day 1 of 2nd project – made the armature and roughed in with chavant nsp hard.
Interesting clay – I think i will like it a lot. not quite sure how i’ll work with it once it is cold though. I’m using a turkey roaster set at 175 degrees to warm the clay – I think I will try setting it at 150 and putting the whole piece in for a half hour tonight, and see what happens.
first assignment for myself : I like doing rough sculpts, so I really want to not do too much smoothing and finish. So instead, lets see how refined and finished i can make her. or if it kills the sculpt for me. She would be about 22″ standing – should be big enough for decent fingers and toes. wonder what i’ll do about hair. at one point i saw her fingers and toes turning into roots and digging into a rock – but now she looks rather bland. may have to think about that. if i give her a rock base and do the roots, perhaps her hair will be turning into leaves…
