Spent some of my bank holiday sculpting a figurine of my late dog in her favourite spot… the empty bath, here in her “DON’T TURN THE LIGHT ON I’M SLEEPING!” pose.
The basic shape is more or less complete, detail to follow. Now this is supposed to be a caricature, I just need to keep reminding myself of that and not go too heavy on the realism, if I haven’t already! (It’s a hard habit to break).
I want to do a realistic full body and bust to follow.
I’ve not used polymer clay before as I normally make a mould to cast pieces so use wax/clay or grey clay to model with, but as I’m doing some one-offs I thought it was the ideal time to try it out rather than making a waste mould.
Thought it’d be fun to display the work he gives me as he grows and see him develop his (current apathy for) creativity!
Don’t have any pics of my own from my childhood 😔 except for a few scribbles over my mom’s recipe books and maybe a couple of oils in the loft I did when I was 10, a rose (with help from my dad) and a cheetah.
