First, the creepy pic (mwahahaha):
Well, thats just a polymer clay scupture being baked.
Couple of days before that:
Not that it took me several days of work, it's just that I wasn't working on it some days. I would think it took me about 8-10 hours total to finish. Although...time flies when you're having fun, so maybe it was 11 hours :)
That's how she looked before baking and boldness treatment:
She got some suntan in the oven. Also, I used soft pastel to add some color.
Glueing the hair was a pain in the ...ehem... hands. And I didn't do it really thoroughly because I'm lazy and impatient.)))
And the front:
Let's call it 'the prison of life' :)
Not that I wouldn't do a concept like that anyway but the truth is that - due to my laziness and impatience again - her feet got bent in the oven and fell off because I hadn't inserted metal wires into them (or hands for that matter). So when I was re-attaching them later with glue I wanted to cover the crack up with something. Chain seemed like a good idea :D
This is the first time I've made a figure with hair. And the 2nd time I've made one with polymer clay. The first was this one.
Also, this time I've used different kind of clay (Cernit 'Doll Collection'). I definitely like the look of this one better, it's more life-like and smooth. But working with it was a bit more difficult as the attachment lines wouldn't mask easily, in fact, I simply couldn't get rid of most of them. Maybe my hands are too cold for this clay, it doesn't melt enough or something...The previous brand was easier to handle in this respect. Oh well... Maybe I'll find a way out of this next time.
There's a book on creating realistic figures in polymer clay btw. That's of course, for those who value their time and money (expressed in wasted material from failed experiments). :)
