Another WIP

Starting on another WIP...yep, a pumpkin head...they seem to invade my brain and will not go away. But, this one is different.  I have been making figures around 5",6" and 7" for my Halloween pieces and I decided to make a 12" figure which I have not done in quite awhile. I can see this one dressed in dyed velvet and silk and holding a wonderfully decorative walking cane....we shall you know, they have a mind of their own and I never really know how they are going to turn out.  I am sculpting this one out of Creative paper clay over a very strong wire armature made stronger with an application of Apoxie Clay.   You can see his head in my convection oven drying.  I always use aluminum foil for the head armature instead of styrofoam so I can put it in the oven to dry.

He, is beginning to come together now...
