This pirate is x-posted in the sculpture forum as well,but I remembered someone mentioned an interest in here for pirates, so here she is.
This still has some work to go, but she is in castilene clay and is about 14 inches tall. There will be a sword slung over her shoulder, a scarf on her waist,and probably some other stuff. Her hand is going to be resting on the handle of her sword.
Thanks for looking,

OH yeah, another incredible sculpt, Heather. You have no idea how much I love your sculptures, and this one is no exception. :)

OMG Heather, she is fabulous! You are so talented. Is castilene the same as plastilene? I think that's what is was .....I used to work at a bronze foundry in so. calif., and that's what a sculpter I worked with there used. Do you have them cast in bronze? I'd love to see more of your work. I'll have to check the scupture channel.
Since this is incomplete does this mean we get to peek in onto the creation process?? I'm fastinated to see how you create these pieces!
Thankyou for posting this - your work is great as always!

Hi TeAnne,Elenkat and Amy!
Thank you for the kind words,I am so glad you like her.
Axl, I have the wip started in the sculpture forum if you are interested.I had camera...troubles...so there isn't much to show.
I'm glad you like her too.
Thanks Tracy. Castiline is not like plasteline,it is a lot harder and a very different textture. I love the stuff,but I have found that I only know a couple of people who use it.

Tracy, you used to work at a foundry in so cal? What part of town areyou in?

Very nice!! I love the folds in her clothing and her ponytail :) How do you finish these? Paint, glaze, firing??
09-19-2002, 10:03 PM
See, that's where I have the biggest problem.My sculptures at home tend to bust out of the gate and then walk to the finish line. I have a few dusty sculpts all over the place. In fact, since we are doing carpeting in the entire house next week, this will likely end up shelved if I don't wrap it up beforehand.
But, If I was to finish it, I would just cast it in resin. I haven't painted any of my sculptures yet,but that would be kind of fun for this one maybe.This clay never hardens,so it won't be fired or glazed.

Unreal... so proud to have you as a member of WC, and our little F/SF - Forum, those lucky "chippies" have had all the fun for too long! :P
Each of your pieces is just better than the next... makes me want to paint em, which leads me to the question, do you ever do that?
09-20-2002, 12:06 AM
No, I don't paint. I really don't know anything about color and have only recently tried out color pencils-which I REALLY like. I would like it better if I knew ANYTHING about color mixing though. I tried a monochrome oil excersise once...really made a mess.
Since joining WC I have realized just how much there is out there to try. WHEN is another thing.:D

Great Contrapposto! Your pieces are quite natural in pose. Very believable.
09-20-2002, 01:09 PM
when you cast it you ought to sculpt an additional hook as an option to a hand :D

Thanks mmdm Cisio and Junior.:D
She's boxed and shelved until new carpeting is done in my house next weekend, but when I get set up again I will post her progress.
