Coated with gesso and texture paste and realized the artists gesso they sell here is mostly acrylic rather than calcium carbonate. Not a good thing.. the finish was tacky and peeled off like a rubbery skin.

Coated the entire thing again with another layer of La Doll clay to try to save it. I think I'll use mr surfacer for the final coat instead and forget about this whole gesso thing.

The weather has been alternating between rainy and very very hot lately, so I continued some work on these.

Most of the time was spent getting each side of them symmetrical.

Progress 20 July 2009

It's been a while since the last update. The weather has been nice and cool (I'm not complaining about that but clay doesn't harden very well in this weather) until recently. Hot weather means time to start sculpting again.

In-progress work for my VtM trio. The one on the left will be a teen, and the one on the right someone around their very late 20s. All kinds of experimental heads below. 10mm eyes for each of them. What I envision for the completed trio will be a typical multi-clan power circle.. a Ventrue Prince, Toreador art gallery owner (the late 20-er), and a Malkavian neonate. Will be fitting her with eyes of 2 different colors. I tried to give her face a psychotic look but it didn't turn out very well (2nd head from left)..

Time to get back to work.

Doll progress, 15 May 2009

Made 2 sets of feet, 1 flat and 1 high heeled.

Also did the test stringing and it seems to work fine. Can hold a pose, but rather weakly. Need to find a way to add more friction around the joints.
