|Peridot Mini Bust|
Below is a step-by-step progression of the sculpt.
Since I used paper clay, I need to dry the sculpt after each step. For that I used a toaster oven. After I finished and happy with the face, I sanded it smooth before adding the hair and other details. The finished sculpt was then sealed using sanding sealer. Sanding sealer is great because you can sand it more to get an even smoother surface. You can find sanding sealer in the wood work or carpentry section in your local hardware store. It's cheap and gets the job done.
Unfortunately I didn't take pictures while painting the sculpt. Maybe next time. The sculpt was painted using acrylic paint by airbrush and hand brushing.
The visor was made using a piece of plastic heated and shaped while warm. It takes a lot of trial and error, and it still doesn't look right even now. Oh well, maybe next time.
