My little fat lady, I made her out of clay.  Chavant Plasteline modeling clay, to be precise.  She's about 13 inches long, and was done for my current sculpture class.  The assignment was to sculpt an anatomically accurate female figure.





I am hoping to mold and cast her in resin at some point, though I'll have to modify her a bit first to get rid of undercuts and such.  Before I do that I need to get portfolio quality photos taken though.

Anyway, comments and crits desired as always.  Thanks for looking!

As a big fat lady (hehe) and a person that loves to sculpt I love this! She is great! Are you going to burnish her smooth?

Thanks for the nice comments, y'all.

CandyMoon, that's about as smooth as I can get with that kind of clay.  When I mold and cast her, part of that process will include smoothing out the first cast and then remolding that.  She's actually not quite as texture-y as she looks, part of it is an optical illusion created by all the damn dust that seems to be magnetically drawn to the clay and then gets smooshed around.

I agree, she's a beautiful little sculpture Smiley

Although, the fact that the eyes are white with no pupils is kinda creepy lol

I could draw little pupils/irises on the eye forms, but I have a feeling that would look even creepier. XD

No need to remove the undercuts, just make a lovely silicone mould. Silicone moulds rock and you can reuse them many, many times.

I cast resin in silicone regularly and have no issues with damaging the mould or the resin reacting.

I've found this stuff to be the best. Sure, the link isn't much good if you're in a different country, but it's the general idea.

I am planning on doing a silicone mold, but I actually do have to fill in some undercuts, mostly in the hair.  You can't really tell from these photos, but I would never get a good pull the way it is now.
