My pleasure. I envy you for the possibility to work with it, it sounds really well to handle. But with those high temperatures and the fact that the paper part burns out it is too tricky to handle for my means. So for the time being I will continue to experiment with my airdrying modelling material, I guess ... not that I have done much in the recent years.
I would have commented when I favored your piece, but I was on my iPad, and for some reason it will not let me comment and fave at the same time. Your work is superb, I was blown away when I saw her.... I agree, the clothes detract from her beauty, and detract from your beautiful gift. People need to see exactly how you have constructed her muscles to give her the "grace" her pose evokes, as well as the "joy" she brings into your heart when realize that she is hand crafted...it is truly an amazing gift you have. I post my writing on DA, but I am an artist, and I used to sculpt at school, and would LOVE to try it again...now that many years have passed, and "life" has taken over I have not had the time to do all the things I used to love when I was young. Keep up the good work! Joy
She is lovely, I especially like the detail of the musculature from her armpit up to her elbow, and the knees. Every muscle is engaged. But her raised leg looks like it can't be connected to her pelvis. I'm not saying it's inaccurate, only that even if I saw a photo of someone in this very pose, I would think it was faked, because the pelvis looks like it's not turned to allow the leg to be so high.
