PostSubject: my first attempt at sculpting   Mon Jan 24, 2011 11:51 am

Finally I decided to start my first sculpture project, advised by Anna (thank you very much!cheers cheers) and encouraged by my wife I love you

I am a total novice in this field of art, so I leave some photos of the process that started yesterday. I still have some days to finish, anyway.

I'm trying to make a female Sumatran rhino, to 1/23 scale (the same as the Papo rhino)

I would appreciate any comments, suggestions or advice on the process of creation. sunny sunny

after making the skeleton I began to put some clay around it:


more clay:


and more Very Happy


first volume:


outlining the shape:


Yesterday I left the figure in this state, starting work on the detail of the back legs:






Thank you!!! geek

thank you Harriet, I'm using super sculpey firm. It's the first one I use, then I can't compare it Embarassed

Thanks Phil, I'll post more photos once the figure will be more detailed.

Sergey, let's see if I'm able to finish the figure with enough realism question question

Ah super sculpey! I was just thinking of ordering some as I've heard such good reviews about it. So do you have to bake it?

Yes Harriet, Sculpey must be baked too... I have some doubts about it because there are thin and thick parts, and time to bake depends on the thickness of the figure question

Lucky, Alex, Susanne and Silvia, thank you very much cheers

Yes, that's a point, I don't know what you'd do about that scratch

Well, finally something has happened this weekend. Shocked

I was not happy with my Rhino, as I was progressing and accumulating mistakes: too thick legs, tummy very low and rather wide, too many "folds " of skin ... Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
So I decided that my rhino passed by the surgeon to correct all these mistakes, while my wife threw her hands to her head, "Joan! all that work!" pale . Now the rhino is better (what do you think?), its position is easier for a newbie like me. These other, the wires forming the skeleton suffered, so that another of my failures was that I chose some wires too thin.

Well, I leave you some pictures of my Sumatran rhino reloaded Razz Razz Razz

It is phantastic- congratulations!!

Is this difficult? And what is the material, is it expensive? Because, i learn for a male nursery nurse and i ask me, can i do this with children?

Silvia, aandmkw, Minhea and Harriet, thank you for your comments Razz
widukind, especially is laborious. I use a material called Sculpey, a modeling clay figures and such in my opinion is not expensive, but I do not know if it would be inappropriate for children.
Let's see if that afternoon I have time to go on with that pirat
