Got them up 🙂 They aren’t as big as the file from the camera but they are at least fairly clear.
Explaining my main tool use- a loop of metal strap that carves and shaves.
Super short shot of the loop used to cut.
Finer detail work- reshaping a nostril with a fine tool- go slow with super fine shaving and pressing.
Finally using a silicon tool as well to help shape.
I learnt something watching these myself 🙂 I use my hands a lot. A lot. Constantly holding or checking weight. I’m not sure if it is in one of these but I do sculpt at night or during cooler days. This way I can carve the shapes out and press texture in without worry about melting the clay with the heat of my hands.
Anyway, I kept the videos short worried I would not be able to convey just why it’s hard to teach how to shape. It’s a mix of learning types- hapatic and visual mostly and both are difficult to convey in digital media. But I think there is something here that is at least worth sharing. 🙂
