The holidays are over and now I have a little time to post. I just added an outer layer to the giraffe. I like to use a cloth mâché technique, although the cloth tends to bubble and wrinkle a bit. Sometimes that looks great, sometimes it doesn’t. It helps if whatever you’re sculpting is something that is supposed have wrinkly skin, but there are ways to smooth the bubbles out a bit. You can also go over the cloth with a flexible filler to smooth it out a little. It all depends on what you want the surface to look like.
Once the cloth is dry, I can begin the painting process.
