Here’s a reclining male I recently finished sculpting. The model was fantastic. This piece is about 19 inches long.
After slicing off the crown of the head with a wire tool, you can see the clay of this portrait bust enrobes a center of crumpled newspaper on the armature. I’ve set the crown aside and will keep it in tact so that it can be replaced later in the process. The newspaper has absorbed [...]
