#105553 Some while in progress shots of little water clay mummy/corpsie sculpture.
Once the clay gets a little firmer I can tighten up everything.
Looking at these pics I need to thin it out a bit more in certain areas.

I like the look I am started to get at the top of the head ...like an old wrinkled bag. :)

Yeah man, in high school I was seriously considering going into your line, went a different way ultimately. I’ve always been an artist, and I’m a writer professionally so at least I get to stretch the creative muscles daily, but over everything; painting, sketching, writing etc. sculpting was the only time the vision in my head came flawlessly out into the work.

Spent some more time on this....finalizing the detail.
Stuck some human size teeth in it that are kind of goofy on a half scale head.
I will make appropriate sized choppers when I pour it up in silicone.
Maybe be able to finish this weekend and dump plaster on it.

Hatter...it is strange the path we take. Sometimes it just takes living life to help steer you to a destination.
You are lucky to enjoy what you do and have it be creative.

#106105 That looks great!

Went looking for supplies last weekend actually, apparently all the art supply stores in my neck of the woods are gone, and the idea of dragging the supplies on the train from NYC sounds like something to avoid, so amazon here I come.

Hey Evan, sent you a PM on this too, but what kind of clay do you use? all the art supply stores in my area seem to have vanished and i'm having trouble knowing what to get. I don't have kiln access so it would need to be air drying. I used to use an air drying clay that was really great, not too soft and i just put a wet towel around the project in between sessions, but its been so long I can't remember the brand.

Thanks!
