Big Luna Sculpt Mane Construction 3 by bigponymac Big Luna Sculpt Mane Construction 3 by bigponymac
Slowly but surely it's coming together. This is as far as I got before I ran out of paper clay. I won't be able to start again until I get some more made. I started that process yesterday by wiring some clay into chunks and setting them out to dry. Clay dissolves a lot easier and faster when it's completely dry. I should be able to mix it in with my already dissolved paper Monday. We'll see how far I get by the end of Tuesday.

And here's a fun fact. If you see any green areas in the clay, that's completely normal. It's just the decomposed paper in the clay making it look green. It'll change back to it's normal color once it's aired out some.

I'm just simply rolling out coils of clay and adding a little bit at a time. The paper I stuffed in there adds support and allows me to build rather quickly.

Are the extra pieces on the legs there to guard them or are you going to shape them into her 'shoes'?

The shoes are already sculpted save for the one on the front left. The extra clay on the legs are there for support and to keep the sculpture from shifting around and potentially cracking...again.

I measured it at one time but can't seem to remember the dimensions. I'm wanting to say it'll stand about 3 feet tall (give or take a couple inches) once I put the horn on.
