I’ve been a bit quiet here this week (OK, not just this week – but let’s not get involved in details). I am taking another hands-on workshop, making a polymer clay figure.
This morning, we baked heads. And by this evening, arms and torso are ready to go into the oven. . . I hope.
She has some issues with her hands, but letting it sit overnight could settle that down a bit. Polymer clay has less body as it gets warm and the weight of her hands causes the wrist to sag – in places where it should not be able to sag! In the morning, the clay should be firmer and a bit easier to control. I can see in this photo that she needs a little more “meat” on that outstretched arm.
I am soooo happy with that face! By George, I think I’ve got it! Tomorrow we start playing with fabric. Oh boy!
