Trying new things…

Hello all. In BPCAG we are doing what is called “Sculpting Practice Rounds”, and this week practice round is the female head. Seeing as I’ve NEVER EVER sculpted anything, this was a little daunting for me. But, I want to do this sooooo bad. So I’m jumping in. With great support from these wonderful ladies of the group, and armed with quite a few different tutorials. Here is a sample of the head I am working on now:

So far this attempt is going okay. I’m trying to be optimistic about it. Even though being optimistic is quite alien to me. 😉 Here is a side shot:

She is entirely polymer clay right now. I tried doing it with a foil ball armature underneath the clay, but I couldn’t get her smooth at all. This seems to be better. I will try to post more as I progress with her. Thanks!

TTFN!
