Well, we have taken quite a bit of time on this set of figures. Yesterday afternoon I was able to sit down and wrap up the wee ones.
The base is pine with a layer of clay adhered to the top, sculpted to look like cobblestones and stippled in greys and greens.
I used the same coarse green duck cloth for the pants as I used for the robe on my William and Kate piece we did earlier this year (see past posts).
A little note about going from design to finished piece. Those of you who have followed along may remember that this started as a little girl in a dress. Well, as the piece developed "she" then became a "he". After the shoes, pants, and shirt he was almost done. However, when I pulled this red hair out of the bin, all that changed - again. I decided that he would be better as a tomboy. The hair has a natural sweep and wave which mimic the sweep of the tentacles on the demon. I also added freckles to match the spots on the demon's face and arms.
Thanks for joining us. I would love to see your creations on this theme if you sculpted along. Please check the "kiddies" out on our Ebay store this week: just look for "Mark Dennis" and they should pop up.
Have a great day!
