The third thing I accomplished today is probably the most exciting.
After I posted pictures of the Nativity I made for my mom:
I want to stream-line the nativity making process this time around, so that any future commissions I might get will go quickly and easily. The first part of the process is to sculpt the heads. I decided this is the perfect opportunity for some experimentation.
I usually sculpt a head by baking the eyeballs first, and sculpting the face around them. But the human face is the opposite, with squishy eyeballs in a hard skull. So what if I sculpted the skull first?
The latex layers on the hands were finally dry, so they needed black line work to match the face.
The coat got buttons and stripes and the snazzy fringe on the shoulders (Amazing how I always have exactly the right ribbon on hand).
His shoes were pretty basic Sculpey shapes with Sculpey buckles glued on.
And now he's all ship-shape and ready to go!

Anyway, I think she's lovely, and am happy to follow her where ever she takes me.
