"Peaches" gets a face lift and augmentation

I've been really busy this past week. I don't feel like I have time to catch my breath. I finished a couple of orders and recieved two new ones. Not much of a chance to work on "Peaches." I did however remold her body and got rid of the "skin condition she had on her face. I alsosculpted out a bottom "skull" so to speak to build under her chin and make a neck. Her eyes are sitting in the socket right now and I need to sculpt around them so she doesn't look like a martian.

The medium I am using is paper clay. It is a great sculpting medium to use and dries almost like a plastic. It's durable and light weight when it dries. Bill Nelson, famous for his artwork in New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications, told me about it. Bill is a master figure maker, the best in my belief. I am lucky enough to own one of his figures!

By next week, I should have her head completed and painted as long as nothing else comes up.....
