Sculpting

My first attempt sculpting, so listening to all advice of "starting small like fixe some joints" I started of trying to sculpt a squig. 



Could not find a working link for this.
artist unknown.










The reason I went for sculpting a squig was part for the discussion I had with my friend about how expensive a squig herd is, and part how easy these two make it look:                                                                              ⬆


The small round balls are going to be a snow lantern hopefully lit by a blue or yellow LED. 


In the back of the tray you can see a milk tankard.

The clay is some sort of paperclay so it beacomes very light when dry.

And here we see that I f#cked up the squig by not wait for the clay to dry before adding the legs… But made a snowman ready to be pushed by snotlings, a goblin wading in snow, a goblin stumbling in snow, a goblin covered in snow, a goblin in disguise as a snowman. 





As you can see I fixed the underside of the feet on the stumbling goblin which where damaged by removal of slotta bar and they where to flat to look natural.
