I started to make the molds for my skulls (see last post) but the molding rubber takes forever to set, so meanwhile I worked a bit on my giant dwarf bust. Seriously!…
It all started when I decided I needed a custom broken statue for miniature bases. The idea was to sculpt a large size dwarf bust, mold it, cast it in plaster and the break it to put the pieces on a diorama.
Then I got carried away, and sculpted so much details in the beard that I’m not sure I’ll be able to make a mold out of it (my skills in that department are limited, at best).
But at the same time, I like that sculpt. So once in a while I still do some retouching and sculpting.
All that to decorate a miniature base: A broken column would have been a lot easier, no? 🙂
By the way, the whole sculpture is about 2 inches tall.
