just in case
Just in case I am not getting anywhere fast, I would like to post a bit of the work I am doing. Boy is it hard getting sculpting, painting, and even baking right the first time I try. I'm making some progress but I have discovered that I have to do things over fairly often. I put the hand on, it isn't right, I pull the hand off, I do it over, I put the hand on, etc. And I am taking forever to get a face done and it isn't what I want so my skill at profanity is increasing. The only time my speech was worse was when I was trying to learn how to use the computer. It's a good thing no one was here to watch, especially my children.
I baked Edward Elf and did some painting on him and I have a lot more to do. He looks better than I expected. The head I am working on is just practice. Boy do I need a lot of practice. But I have loved the practice. That is good. I would like to use the head for some doll sometime. I do think he is sort of cute. I ordered some wool hair and I imagine it will come in a week or two. Next experiment. Finishing the painting of the eyes.
I included a couple of pics of my workspace. It isn't particularly well organized but it got so messy after sculpting Winifred that I had to organize it some. I'm sure as time goes by it will be obvious what works and what doesn't. I can't wait till I am organized, though. Got to practice and do it a lot.
