i wanted to make my own pasta for several reasons.
mainly because i was intrigued. but i am also a broke student.
and i always make things too complicated when i want to start something new.
anywho, i wanted to make a portrait of one of my heroes in her younger years.
i wanted it to be kinda kitsch, but not too insane to hang on my wall.
i started by making the dough, and adding food coloring.
then i just started sculpting after this image that i found in the internets.
i was waaay to detailed when i started.
it took for ever (eight hours).
oh noes! it's cracking...
live and learn. i had to keep spraying it with water to keep it moist enough to sculpt.
in the end, it was very unevenly dry. that's probably why it cracked on me.
i'm thinking of putting some varnish or something to give it a glossy look.
right now it looks kinda fugly up close. i think i will keep squinting at it.
thank you for looking!
thankful for pointers/comments
