The Cast

[wpseo_breadcrumb]

The casting experience has been exciting; there were steps that I have to solve and still fixing the ears on the sculpture. The ears are the most sensitive part and very delicate. I sculpt it again, for I did not let the clay dry a long time before I applied the plaster of Paris. And on the working process, I discovered new techniques that have left me with excellent restoration knowledge. The vaseline that I used on the clay left the original solid cast all slushy, and I was not very happy for it took me time to clean it. These are the con that in my next sculpture will be better executed. I’m totally excited to continue with my next commission.
Any comments on this piece, write to me with your suggestions; I’m open to tips.

To render the figure wet the surface to soften. Keep it in mind. James is a teenager. It can be used with adults as well.
Wherever approach comes handy, is acceptable and this process relies on memory. such as knowing the model

I used pictures as the reference to find his expressions, and get his character
In the end, the results were rewarding and satisfactory.


MODELING GESTURES
James’ gestures are in the softness of his face. Enough information to give the bust a gestural expression full of innocence and joy.

CARLA’S PORTRAIT IN 3/4 DIMENSIONS

LUCIN'S BLOG
Lucin’s Blog/The use of Space, Carla’s position is on a three-quarter view very hard to get; this is one head and figure posed about halfway between the front and profile pose. Our brain plays an important role. Do we see with our eyes or our minds at first glance in real life when objects move? Our brains compensate what we want to see; on a painting, we see the present waiting to form. Later on, your mind will relate to your memories.
The right side shoulder appears bigger. The left side is more prominent.

BEST FRIEND

Blog
Sixty-seven percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet in the USA. The dog, followed by the cat, is the second most popular pet owned by humans.
Too bad they last from 10 to 13 years. My best friend was a mutt dog called Pillin. Whenever we could scape from our grandmother’s house, Pillin was always there with us. Nobody could get closer to us Pillin will defend us. A hunter, I would say it was. We did not need a rat exterminator for our dog to kill rats by grabbing then by the neck.
