Tonight I covered over all of the Scott paper rags and masking tape that I added to the rabbit guy last night. I wanted to get the first few hardening layers of plaster cloth on and drying. I knew there would be areas that would sag in a bit because some areas were more tightly packed in than others.
|How he looked when I sat down to work tonight.|
|Some areas were more tightly packed with the Scott paper rags and tape than others...they will sag a bit tonight.|
|There -- not too bad.|
|There was less sagging than I was expecting but it might show up again later on.|
|His hips/haunches are looking a little more hippier/haunchier and his belly is a bit round. He will still need lots of shaping.|
I also took a look at the hands that I made for the rabbit guy a while back. I needed to see if they were still going to fit into his sleeves. I also needed to wiggle-test the fingers and yep, they do need more plaster cloth reinforcement to make them more rigid. I don't want them to snap off accidentally after he is all built. That will be another night's work, though...that is tighter, closer, fussier work than I have in me right now. For now -- here is how he looks overall.
|The hands I made for the rabbit guy a while back. The fingers need more thinly applied layers of plaster cloth for strength.|
|The hands still fit into the ends of his sleeves -- yay!|
|He's got a more "I'm gonna git ya" look.|
|I think he is shaping up pretty nicely, all in all.|
