03 Armature Nº 8
I am going to start the armature with the head. I want to make some wood blocks to put inside the clay, so I will not have to use as much oil-clay. The first thing I do is to put some pieces of tracing paper over my working drawing and trace the contours. Then I use a red colored pencil to make the outline of the wood.
These are the measurements of the wood pieces.
In order to get everything in a piece of wood, I will use some wood scraps that are 3 inches by 4 inches.
Once I cut the wood, I knock off any splinters with the sander, then apply some wood glue.
Then I clamp the pieces of wood and leave them over something to catch the excess glue that leaks out.
This is the way I will make all the pieces of wood that I want to put on the armature. When the glues dries, I will stick the tracing paper on the sides, and cut out around the silhouettes.
