WIP Saturday



Well, I think I have finally gotten out of my slump.  I took a few ideas from the little napkin sketches I did the other day.  Thought I'd see if I could actually bring them to life.  So, here is the rabbit head I made inspired by the sketch.  Not exactly as I had drawn it but, at least I did one.  I like the first head.  I didn't even have the sketch handy for reference.  Laziness got the best of me and I didn't want to hunt for it.  So, this guy is polymer clay over a foil and wire armature.  It's a technique I will be teaching in March for the Waynesville group.  They wanted to have me teach them my goblin head or character sculpting technique.  So, this is a front view of the baked head.



This is a side shot of the head.  I plan on making a wire armature for the body and do a wrapped body using a batting and cloth wrapping technique.  Once I get the body the way I want it, I cover it with fuzzy fibers.  He will also have sculpted hands/paws and feet.  I need to go buy some batting to use.  I am all out at the moment.



This is the beginning of the pickle goblin.  I have made the armature as you see here.  Then covered him in polymer clay and he is now baking as I type this.  This was a fun sculpt very much a character style.  You'll see in the next post.  Well, that's it for today.  I can't believe I was able to post twice in two days.  Have a great weekend everyone.
