This is the second video in this series. You can see the first video here. This time I add the eyes and nose, and put on the basic shapes that surround the eye. The sculpture still has a very long ways to go.
I do like this guy, and I’ve decided to make a silicone mold for it when it’s done. (I like him a lot better than this wolf I made a silicone mold for last year – I never actually used that mold, because I didn’t like his expression).Â I’m also thinking about doing some experiments with an modified form of the fast-setting paste to see if it’s possible to use layered paper mache inside a negative mold without losing any really fine details. I’m skeptical, so in the end it will probably be made using the “instant paper mache” recipe I used for the cougar and hippo – but it would still be fun to play around with it.
