The paper mache clay alpaca portrait is now officially finished … maybe.
As you can see in the video, there were lots of complications. Almost all of them happened because I was experimenting, and experiments don’t always work. But I did fix most of the boo-boos – now I’m just not sure about those eyelashes. I’ve put fake eyelashes on a lot of sculptures lately, and I’ve always liked the way they looked. But this time, I’m not so sure. If you have any ideas for making them look better, let me know in the comments below.
If you think I should just remove them, you can tell me that, too. 🙂
The brush pen set I experimented with would probably work well over smooth air dry clay, but the grey and black colors smudge and never seem to fully dry. And the color on the cap isn’t even close to the color in the pen, so you have to do a lot of searching to find the color you need.
If you know of a good video that would help me learn how to use them, please leave a comment below. I would love to do a portrait sculpture of a parrot or other brightly-colored bird, and that’s why I bought the pen set. But I don’t want to try it until I’ve figured out how to use them.
