new things

Postby phairee004 on Mon Jan 31, 2011 10:08 am

hi everyone!
well its been a little while since sculpting my last piece.

i have decided to try my hand at air dry clay & picked up some la doll clay. i am finishing some pieces ive had since around october. the first one has an already made polymer clay body but to give a more light feeling then. i wanted to finish with ADC and then her head and hands will be finished with PC.....i think she will be my cirque du ballet #3!

the 2nd one is a new series, and im not sure what to call it yet. shes sort of the ring leader of the whole group.i have big plans and something that will hopefully will mark my signature (to me ;) ).
i just need to finish her head and arms and hand and then costume her and she will be complete.

I hate inset eyes, but I love love how they look once they are in. Have you tried the skull thing yet. Check out Madsculptor on facebook. He does this thing with a skull that lets you set the eyes into an under armature skull get them and equal depth and pointing in the same direction. Then bake them in place. Then add yout skin clay over top. If works very well actually,once you get used to the process. Actually If you not going to have teeth showing it is pretty simple. Best part is the eyes do not move around while your sculpting. I can't tell you how many times I pushed to hard while smoothing and mae one eye set in farther then the other and ended up having to dig them back out and start over. But it is all good practice. BTW those eyes are gorgeous. did you make them yourself?
Morphing a ball of clay and wire into something beautiful is magical. It puts a bright light in my heart to see what my otherwise clumsy hands have created.

thanks ladies, :D
linda, i havent tried that method yet and it wouldnt hurt to try next time :) and of course i made the eyes ;)

i worked a little on her yesterday and i am loving this ADC,very easy to work with and you can use your heat gun to set it almost instantly then go back sand or cut away what you need! add more if you need to! its great stuff!

i bulked the legs up and i will continue to work on the rest of the body today i hope, if nap time doesnt sneak up on me . hehehe

possibly work on the 2nd doll....will get back to you all later on that.

Candis, I'd love to have these legs and I actually like the face you did. The eyes are perfect, as Caza said, they are looking at you. But I also know how fussy and unpleased one can be with the own work... so I can't wait to see the new head :)
