So the worst thing is I am now waiting until I can mold her. There are a few areas to tidy and even up a bit more. But when you are at about 95% done that last 5% can make or break a project
The breaking is when you start to see that 5% as more important than the rest and overthink or over do any deatil work. In this case I could wind up scraping off too much to actually fit my head. I mean the pieces are already very much not human but if they are too small the risk is stretching and deforming over natural facial shapes.
That said there are a few burrs than need polishing and I still need to see all the parts in a mirror but I need to keep in mind all that I have done so far. So I’ll be leaving the pieces for a few days while I get enough distance to get better perspectve and then will start prepping her for molding. Using some of that work to fix the minor issues. Or I’ll look at it in the mirror and find something else to fix.
Either way, I cant start molding until I have my ultracal which means a courier as it will be the big 22.5kg bad in a bucket. Um. That’s a negatory for me being able to move that at all.
I’ve got insomnia and my wrists are part of why I am still awake. But so too is my sheer joy at having sculpted a nicely complex piece of art from nothing but squishy kiddie clay.
Think of what I chould do with real clay. Hmmmmmm, real clay.
