In a previous life I worked in soft clay on large pieces, and when I got into action figures and collectibles I had to learn to sculpt in castilene. I like it because it acts like both clay and wax. They changed the formula a few times over the years, and I use a special blend of it with additives to make it harder. I empathize about mold work, I can't stand it..

yeah me too and I like building up a hollow form fast. Polymer is so droopy easy to ruin details youve done and a dirt magnet.
I have someone molding and casting my doll now ,but its so expensive!

Ok, for a critique, I think you need to add more detail on the eye lids, they also look a little bulgy. However, this entire piece is very amazing! I would almost like to see the forehead and cheeks have more detail, like the dresss does (I assume its a dress). This is truly a very cool work of art. You always have such beautiful color and detail on so many of your pieces. :]

Thank you so much for the thoughtful crit:D
Yes I am sort of uncertain how to detail the face.Nicely How to make an organic or skin or leather texture.
I fought a bit with the eyes getting it away from looking Ray Caesar. I wanted pod like but, maybe I overdid a bit there haha

You're welcome ^_^
Look up HR Giger's "Baby Wall in Giger Museum". I think you can get some inspiration for the closed eyes from there. Giger is one of my favorite Surrealist artists. If not, I'm sure you can come up with something. :] You're work is very interesting and I like looking at the huge amount of pieces you have. Kinda inspiring in more ways than one.

I think, just seeing how you did the neck and such, maybe trying the same type of detail on the fact to carry out the motif would help? Just a thought, but I like how it looks a tiny bit mechanical in the lower part of the sculpture and more organic towards the top. :] I've not really worked with plaster, so I commend you greatly for your work, especially on this piece. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out! :D

Yes I know Giger's work he influenced me very early actually. Micheal Henricot too. Um but those have a natural baby/doll look. I want to keep and otherworldly look, but I did cut down the bulge of the eyes and forehead today.

This is not plaster but, entirely polymer clay. Like Sculpy. I have kind of a melting whipped cream look going on the chest plate so, I can carry drips from the face area too.
Thank you me too.

Oh, sorry. It looked like plaster. I love Sculpy, made an anatomical figure for class out of it. Love it to death. :]

May I suggest metal eye lids of a sort? It would keep the bulginess (I wasn't sure if it was intended to be like that, but now that you say it is suppose to be, I grow more fond), while adding a definite uniqueness to the piece.

Thanks :).. not liking that think it will be busy and draw too much to itself. Yes the face is scrunched like a Pekineese and I rather liked a slight bulgy pod shape. its minimized now but, still there. Not a human child nessisarily so not meant to look proportionally correct..
