I’m blaming Debra of “Feather Garden” for giving me the urge to do some sculpting. This is a lot of fun but very time-consuming for me. Above is as far as I got over two days, and I’m beat! I don’t know how Debra created her numerous “Clay People” for only one post. She is amazing! Anyhow, next is to build up my figure with more papier-mache, always thoroughly drying between layers. I don’t plan to dress my creation as Debra is doing, but other ideas come to mind. I hope my figure has character, and that her arms will somehow grow longer! I will post an update, wish me luck!
PS...Gene asked about a wire armature. I did start with that, then added scrunched tin foil and masking tape to hold the shape. The papier mache started going on top of that.
