08 Joint Design Nº 284
Today I laid out and scribed a line for the skull cap. Now that I have all the balls welded on, I'd like to do a loose stringing test on the carving wax doll. It will be the first of many as I design the joints. I am happy that I am finally at this stage of development. Anyway, I used my wooden pottery calipers to measure from a point right under the middle of the nose, over to the ears, and made a mark with a small drill bit. Then I put a point of one leg of the calipers in the small hole, and scribed a line with the other leg's point, to find the middle of the head. Then I lightly scribed a line for the skull cap, using the calipers, with one point in the center hole on top of the head, and the other point scribing the line. Finally, I used my X-Acto knife to make the lightly scribed line a little deeper. The skull cap is ready to be cut out. Click on any image to enlarge it.
