I'M BAAAAACK! I have no way of sculpting now that I'm a first-year at college but I've missed sculpture so much! The moment I got home for Thanksgiving break I busted out the clay box and made this Happy fingers are sculpting fingers!
I haven't made a Toothless sculpture since my junior year of high school and I know I have learned a lot since then and I've developed more of a style, so I thought I'd revisit this little guy. I had a blast remaking him!!
This is a customized Nightmare Before Christmas themed wedding cake "topper" (as you can see, it turned out to be larger than the cake itself... whoops)
This was my first attempt to make a wedding cake topper, obviously the sizing was a catastrophic error on my part, but I wasn't confident enough in my painting skills to be able to get the details in there if it was any smaller.
As you can see, I started with creating a wire shape of the bodies, covered it with clay, then painted. There are other details, such as Sally's hair is made with painted strips of twine, and her veil and bouquet are made lace fabric.
Also, I do not think Sally would ever wear that white dress. Ever. However, it's a replica of the dress my friend wore, whom I made this for.
