A small figure sculpture for a television commercial.
|This is the concept sketch.||The idea was to make a hood ornament that had the feeling of a woman in peril like but not recognizable as Fay Wray.||After making an armature of flexible wire and applying clay, in this case Sculpey which I could easily bake in a home oven, this is the rough sculpture.|
|The client wanted more feeling of motion in the clothes and hair. This is the sculpture in it's final form before baking.||Sculpey is baked at a low temperature, after which it can be carved and sanded. Primed to show flaws more easily.||Sanded and painted with bright metallic silver paint.|
