WHAT ARE YOU DOING LOOKING AT MY BLOG?!?
Nah its fine don't worry
Anyways when we left off I was babblin' on about armatures. so next, I thought I'd show you my miniature girl.
As I said before, there's a couple scenes that show a hill with a little girl on top. So to save me making another full armature with clothes and all that, I decided to make this hill scene in miniatures.
So here I go:
Firstly I sculpted a design of the little girl on top of the miniature armatures made previously
She's shown below:
She's only being seen from the back 3/4s so the sculpt of her face wasn't too important, for this, i just need a readable silhouette of a girl, I think It works...
Next the claying up.
I rolled out a sheet of plaster scene with a rolling pin...
Carefully, I clayed her up so she was half submerged in the plasticise. This would give me the one part of the mould.
I added moulding keys also :)
I then boxed her in ready to pour plaster on her...
I then got prepped for making plaster. with a checklist of things I needed:
- Clayed up and boxed in sculpt
- Cup of water
- Cup of plaster (in this case, a Marmite lunchbox)
- A whisk
- A mat, to stop mess!
- Extra plasticene in case of leakages
I then made the plaster, poured it and then waited for it to set.
I unboxed the mould and removed the clay to find One part of my mould!
I cleaned things up and then added more shapes around the sculpt so I could remove the two parts of the mould easily when using sticky silicone
I then boxed her in again, placed the K&S where I needed a hole for the swing and then poured some more plaster on top
And here are the two parts of my mould! waahooo!
I then filled the mould up with black silcone (as she'll be as a silhouette)
However, the final didn't come out as planned, and I've run out of silicone now, so I'll upload a pic when I've made a version i'm 'happy' with.
Over and out
