il Scultura Nuovo
So, I have finally reached the stage where I can leave the clay alone. This is my first attempt at a clay sculpture (second if you count the horrible attempt that looked like a man). Luckily, I scraped that one off and kept going...
So, the next steps as I understand them: plaster cast a waste mold, let it dry, pick out the clay, fill the waste mold with plaster or resin, let that dry, then finally chip off the waste mold.
Once I have the model done this week, I'll go to the stone yard and pick a piece of marble big enough to carve this into. It's not as good as the 2400 year old original in my opinion (pictured below), but it is mine and it is without snakes (I hear some people don't like snakes). I'm thinking about a nice Cararra marble piece for it. Maybe Parisian, any ideas?
