|Fradira's little friend has a wire armature. |
Her feet are made from Apoxie Sculpt. Hands are machine sewn,
attached and stuffed with cotton batting. Armature is then wrapped in batting.
|All wrapped in batting and ready to be "skinned".|
|Let the "skinning" begin!|
I wanted to try yet a couple of other techniques on Fradira, but was afraid that I would mess her up or wouldn't like the result. The techniques...the first was just just using paperclay to sculpt the head and shoulders into the fabric of the body...awesome technique...loved it...worked great!
|Head attached. Paperclay sculpted onto |
fabric at shoulders and feet...seamless!
|A view of the back and copyright label that will |
actually be underneath the seal and paints.
|Multiple layers of a mix of molding paste |
and acrylic gel before gesso.
Gotta think of a name for Fradira's little friend!
