Lots and lots of sanding.... with more to go

Cady is coming along. Lots and lots of sanding - with more to come! She needs lower arms and ears and lots more sanding.

Adventures and misadventures with limbs and joints

I took some time away from sculpting - I waited until I was eager to get back to it.
So, I did a bit of sanding, then managed to wash one arm down the sink rinsing it off. I began a replacement arm, worked out the lower body joints, finished up the other lower leg.

Cady Day 15 - lengthened and baked torso, then carving & reworking the hip jointing

I sketched her out & keep trying to use that proportion, but my eyes say no... so, she is changing yet again. 

The reassuring thing is that after this change I counted heads... and she is the proportion I intended in my sketch.

CADY - Day 11 of sculpting - toes!

gave her lower right leg toes, smoothed it all & baked. It fell over in baking, twisted the knee cap around. I cut off the wrong bits, added clay, re-worked it until I liked it again and then baked it once more. This time it was good and I began to match the left leg to the right.
Before first bake.

Reworked knee and baked again. Begin matching other leg.

CADY BJD Day 9 - sanding begins

I use wet/dry sanding pads and have begun on the head and right thigh that I baked last night.
