So I thought I’d share how I matched one side to the other 🙂
After tidying up the proportions I started to transfer the lines by using a divider (scribe compass.) I did this along the top section on the inside as well as the outside.
After that I used the needle point picker from my sculpting tool set. I pressed the long end across the clay to start and then matched to that line from each side.
And then I did a crazy thing. I took a paint scraper and pressed it in to the clay by a few mm using the edges to line up smoothly and precisely.
This deep but narrow line was then beveled with a silicone tool
This was imperfect so I spent some time buffing the surface with a cloth in one direction.
After this I used a large smooth bristled paintbrush dipped in vaseline to further smooth.
Now that I have set in for the night I can see the last bit of evening up I need to do!
