Thanks, everyone, for the comments and compliments!
I totally agree that I need smaller brushes. Also, Eric, you're absolutely right that customizing these would be cool. That might be the next step. I was thinking of giving them a chiseled finish or wood grain or using tapa patterns.
I'm kind of fidgeting around and trying to decide what to do next. I think I will pour a few more skulls and a couple more of the Ken Ocorr statues this week.
However, I think I want to move on and make my own sculpted mug for the next project.
I have a cool pic of a Tahitian piece that looks really different and is inspiring me to make a mug version.
I like the idea of using the plasteline clay for the sculpt, so I get great detail, but I've never used it and I'm not sure what brand (Roma, Prima, Claystone?) to use. Also, I was told I needed a heat lamp to make this stuff pliable. Is that true?
Anyway, I think I'll probably try to move forward on this in a week or two. I feel confident with all the great mold-making tips on this board and online that I can move ahead.
We'll see, I guess. Whether I succeed or crash and burn, I'll post results.
