Sculpting Update

Well, because I'm impatient I just wanted to dive right in to my "sculpting" so, let the consistency be damned, I used the paper clay I had on hand. I'm not unhappy with the result, though unlike Lauriebeast I didn't just pick up clay one day and suddenly discover I could create the Bride of Frankenstein. Still, with refinements and painting, it may be good enough to put out into the yard display and not have to hide it under low-light conditions.

Anyway, here are a couple of progress pictures.

The paper mache base skull with a cardboard tube neck, also mached.

After applying some of the facial features.

While the eye sockets look really large and wide here, they don't seem so big in person. And actually, I'll be adding more clay to the face to create a more saggy skin look and to achieve heavy-bagged eyes. Had to stop here, though, because the wife wanted to have a dinner-and-a-movie night with me. Damn, woman! You're interfering in the creation of art!


  1. Hahaha, damn those wives wanting to spend time with hubby's!!! ;) (I have dates with Jaybo.... we get a sack of McDonald burgers, listen to Hauntcast and mache. Nothing says Romance like corpsing together!)

    Cannot wait to see the progress pictures - keep us up to date - yours already looks 12 times better than mine does at that early stage! :D

  2. Thanks! If I could only get the little lady interested in corpsing! ;>


  3. Your head is looking good so far. Better than anything I did to date. Looking forward to see your progress.
