Portrait Sculpting from Life
Zoe Dufour is a master sculptor with incredible skill for modeling form. In this Masterpiece Demo you’ll get to visit her studio and watch as she creates a longer sculpture from scratch.
She’ll show you everything you’ll need to get started, including how she makes her own tools. She’ll guide you through the entire process of sculpting a portrait from life, starting with the wire armature, then building up clay to get the large forms, and taking it to a finish with the details.
After the clay sculpt is finished you’ll see how she makes a throwaway plaster mold and a cast with a base. It’s fully narrated, as she explains her thought process, gives tips and warns about common mistakes.
