Diable sculpt update

I'm quite excited as I has finished the sculpting and have just cast the first half of my two part mould. WoooWho, my fingers have still bits of plaster on them and so no photos in this post but rest assured I have taken some and will post tomorrow. I am excited and just a bit anxious that all will turn out ok. I guess I now while I wait for setting process I'll have get on with normal life and do the dish washing and clean up my flat, things I have neglected whilst pushing on with this project. Oh well........

Happy New Year everyone

Well what a start to the new year. Today I began work on a new puppet, basically to learn a technique of sculpting, making a mould and then casting with flexible P.U. cold foam. Not sure if its going to work but if it does I will very happy, if not then it will be a lesson well learnt. I have designed him and made a start on the armature. I will take some photos in the morning as I'm too tired tonight. I also spent a small fortune on eBay today on hardware and tools, its the only kind of shopping I get excited about, tools and materials. Ah! holidays, I love it when I have time to focus on my own projects.
