The head piece doesnt show very well but, its a bear hat. The bear had a snarling face.
I loved making her the face just worked this time no fighting!

Those are the best! I also enjoy when a piece just behaves and seems to form on it's own.

your faces stand out in a medium where often sculptors tend towards the vacuously pretty...your figures seem to live & breathe,& you capture their thoughts...marvellous!

I think she is my most believable alive face to date! I want to continue doing realism but, not too much. I dont want it to be boringly perfect.

Luscious work. Wish I could see something that puts the size in context. What is 5"? The face, the whole figure?

Luscious. I like that:) 5" is how tall she is from the shoulder to top of head.The face by itself is 3" tall

yeah I like the hat. next time I will prepare the hat a little better. I could have used glass lenses for the goggles if I had thought f it sooner.

It still looks cool,Maybe try liquid polymer,thats what I used for the six pack plastic rings on my alien fisherman.

Like I did on Fwop [link] I put a thin layer of liquid sculpey on wax paper and baked it the alotted time,let it cool and then took a ink pen apart,one with a good aluminum barrel and used it like a cookie cutter and cut out holes for the cans. I was thinking the similar process could be apply to goggles or glasses,but use the cutouts for the lenses.Another idea might be to make the frames minis the ear peices,or legs ( I think thats what they call them) and lay it on wax paper and fill lens area with liquid sculpey and then bake. Just a thought,maybe this will help.

I never did that before ,but have you noticed a lot of art now has cute animal caps?! Bunnies ,kitties and bears oh my!
I was almost out of mohair and that stuff if its nice is like 20 bucks an oz! So, this way I only needed a tiny bit of hair.

what kind of colors do you use for the skin?
Reply
:iconsleetwealth:
Sleetwealth Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
The clay has a base color of a pale peach tone. Then I paint with white, ocher,pink and red black mixed ,a touch of blue grey at the corner of the eye. Like real skin its multihued.
