This is an itty bitty hula dancer figure I started over a year ago. I put her down one day and never picked her back up. I thought that maybe if I posted some pictures and got some response that I would actually get my lazy self to finish up the poor little girl.



She's about 3 inches tall.



I sculpted a wax-like clay over a wire armature. I used a picture of a Tahitian dancer as reference.

Any comments are welcome. Bring it! Thanks.

I sculpted her using some clay that a friend got for me while in China. I don't know what it's called, and I'll probably never get any more of it!

It's really waxy and is great for small details. Anyone ever seen this stuff before?

Dav-
This is intense! I love teeny tiny sculpts... Not to do them, but to see them. Rock on!!! Keep us sculpulators informed if you find out about the Chinese Clay of Mystery.

She looks great! What is the next step? Do you use it to make some kind of mold?

Thanks everybody for your kind words. Glad you like my little Gal-Pal. I spent some time this weekend working on her. I didn't like the skirt much so I changed some stuff on it.

Yes, the next step after sculpting is completed is to make a silicone mold. Then I'll cast a resin piece. If I still think she needs more work, I'll touch up the resin by sanding, carving, or adding to it with epoxy putty. Then make a new mold and hopefully she'll be perfect!

I'll post more shots after the mold is done!!

Well done Tikidav. I still cant get over the detail, in the face especially. Insanely clever.

Other than preping for casting, is she finished? Looks perfect!
