I got the 3 Wise Men finished before Christmas, but it was a slow process.
There’s still quite a bit of work to do on these fellows, and I’ll show you what I did to finish them in the next video.
In this video, the air dry clay is added to cover up the foil armature. They’re starting to look really nice, even though they still aren’t painted.
The other videos in this series:
- Part 1: Creating the wire armature and sculpting the head
- Part 2: Changing the Base and Adding Two More Wise Men
- Part 4: Finishing the details and painting the 3 Wise Men
When you make your Three Wise Men, will you dress them in the Three Kings style, with bright colors and lots of bling, or do you prefer the plain and simple Zoroastrian priest idea? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject, so please leave a comment and let us know.
