Andrew, Thank you for this Figure Sculpture Challenge and for your informative Livestreams. Time has run out, So I am looking at my sculpture as a work in progress or a study for a future sculpture done in Apoxie Sculpt. I used the cranial unit of 1.5 inches. Materials used was 9 gauge aluminum wire and Chavant Clay NSP medium with a mix with some Chavant hard clay. Again, Thanks!
Andrew Have you checkout Robert Tolone Mold Making Site on YouTube? He just put out a Glove Mold Video yesterday using a high stretch silicone rubber for doing a cast of a female bust. He makes some very interesting points on mold making and the materials. Thanks again, for your approach and information on sculpturing. Ray
Is there a download for Adjustable Armatures??? Also I have been away and I need to catch up. I viewed your Bridgeman video the other day. You were asked questions about Mold Making Techniques. Do you know Robert Tolone You Tube Site which is all about Mold Making. He has covered One & Two Piece Molds, Blanket Molds, Cut Molds, Rotational Molding and how to build your own Rotational Mold Machine that is hand driven. He has a lot of great suggestions how to succeed in Molding and Casting. He has been very helpful to me in my work with figures.
