04 Modeling Nº 155
I used a flat washer that I found in my scrap box to scribe a circle in each arm area on the torso. Since the circle is the same size on each side, I can easily see where I need to do some work. I tried to position the circle the same distance down from the top of the shoulder on each side. I would like to make the figure's right side the same as the figure's left side. Click on the images to enlarge them.
I found a nice, large metal tray to put the old pillow on. This will make it easier to move the pillow around the studio once the figure is on it. If I did not have the metal tray, I would have made a plywood modeling board, of about the same dimensions as the pillow, with some pieces of wood fastened underneath to make it easier to pick up.
I am hoping that the pillow will help keep the oil-clay figure from distorting too much when I cut the legs off the torso. I am very happy that I designed the armature so that the head and arms are removable.
