Clay sculpture

Experimented with clay sculpture over the weekend. Here are the initial results:

  1. Er... was this a first attempt? It looks pretty good to me. Is it a recommended practice to mold hair as a separate component?

  3. Jap: yeah, but Play-Doh never really had the consistency that I was looking for, that's why I, er, stuck with clay. Orange is great because it gives the terracotta effect. But when I went back to National Bookstore, all the orange bars were gone -- had to content myself with blue and green. Hmmm...Incredible Hulk sculpture next?

  4. Sean: thanks! As this really was my first attempt, I haven't worked out all the tricks yet. But it seemed natural to mold the hair separately. Actually, what I did was flatten out and cut three rectangular strips. That's one each for the left and right parts of the hair, and one for the back of the head. Then I padded them on to the "scalp." I added the lines last.

    I use the Sculpey modelling tools, by the way. Not absolutely necessary but sure makes life easier.

  5. The one in the first picture looks like someone i've seen in real life although i'm still trying to remember who exactly it reminds me of.
