Are you going to make a mold or 3-D copies available? I know it is a different procedure for 3-D copies but it might be easier then casting the originals.

Moulds might be a possibility, I'll let you guys know if that happens.

Oh, l love her Andrew. They're going to be such an amazing pair, if you do make moulds I'd be very interested!
Are the tusks made from a different clay?

Thanks, the tusks are just toothpicks at this point, I will be sculpting some new ones from epoxy putty for the finals.

I made some epoxy putty tusks which cure to a perfect ivory colour.
Next step is to refine the anatomy and then texture.

Thanks, the brown is actually from the model getting burnt in the oven, I still need to paint this elephant when I'm done texturing it.

I've never done that, sculpted more detail after it's cured. It's amazing work Andrew, I'm very much looking forward to seeing it painted.
