08 Joint Design Nº 482
I worked on the toes of the right carving wax foot. I check my work by pressing some oil-clay over the toes. This is one way that heps me to see where I need to do more work. I roll out a coil of the oil-clay, then I warm it up in my hand before pressing it over the toes. I let it cool a wee bit before prying it off. Then I can check the positive against the negative. The negative imprint in the oil-clay is very similar to what the plaster will look like when I make the mold. I do not want any slender, sharp edges between the toes, or around the toenails. I am trying to make a slightly rounded fillet instead. I am also looking for any places that the oil-clay might stick; as that indicates an undercut. Click on the image to enlarge it.
