I feel like I am getting very close to the final oil-clay surface of my figure, so I thought I would try to see if I could smooth the oil-clay with an old sock. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I will continue to try various things to see what works the best. The idea is to get the oil-clay as close as possible to a finished surface so that refining the carving wax will not be too much work. The carving wax can be finished glass smooth.
This is the texture of the old sock.
At The Grand Central Academy of Art, the 2012 Sculpture Competition is under way. There are some good photos of works-in-progress being modeled in clay from a live model.
