Sculpting a sitting woman - Part 2
I attach the head to the body before I start adding paper mache to the body.
I start with the body, then continue towards the legs. I leave the arms to later stages.
Once the body is covered I can start with the hands. I start by drawing a 1:1 sketch of the hand. And cut thin wires a bit longer than the length of the sketched hand.
I wrap each finger with a piece of masking tape.
I attach the four fingers together.
After I add the thumb, I shape the hand.
Adding paper mache, I start by adding very small amounts in the palm area.
For each finger I create a small sausage and wrap it around the wire.
Each hand is attached before I add the paper mache to the arm. This way the wrist does not become too fat. If the hand is supposed to be placed on the body I refrain from adding paper mache to the hand till I sculpt the cloths.
