Day 4 - The Hollowing
I explained some of the steps in the pics. But here's some things that weren't explained.
That white thing in the background in the first pic is a piece of foam. Basically after I wired Dash off the clouds and the base off the plate, I put the piece of foam on top of the clouds and carefully flipped it over so I could hollow it out from the bottom. The foam gives something soft for the sculpture to sit on. After I got so deep, I carefully flipped it back over and hollowed it out from the top.
I hollowed out the torso and the head and began the process of putting her back together which involved a lot of scoring and slipping and caulking with soft clay.
It's still not perfect but it'll be easier to blend it when the clay dries out a little bit more.
Tomorrow I add the front legs and ears, detail her eyes, and maybe add her mane.
