    Wink Fascinated by watching this guy sculpt



    Silly kinda question, since I've had the freaking URGE to sculpt!

    Um...does the paper get burned off inside if he bakes it?

    Typically you would remove the paper from the inside prior to putting it in a kiln. Sometimes you have to open up the back of the skull on a portrait head to get all of the paper out.

    It is great how direct and deft this guy is. I don't have speakers on my computer, so I don't know if there was a voice-over instruction explaining he uses some "bakable" clay, but when I learned this a whole lot of years ago in school, including coring it with paper to save on wieght and clay, we used water-based clay, and would make a plaster "Waste Mold" to make the final image in plaster.
    in the process of making the plaster negative of your clay piece, into which you will pour plaster to make the final finished piece, you lose the clay original, hence "waste" mold. When your plaster mold has hardened you just scoop out the clay and clean in preparation to pour the new plaster.
    One semester my life-drawing instructor, knowing I was heavily into figure sculpture, told me to go ahead and bring a couple pounds of clay from the sculpture studio instead of drawing tools and just work up gesture studies of the model, very directly with my hands. Try this if you've got a mad-on for clay, it's a great way to begin!

    oops, I just remembered this morning the process is called waste mold because after the plaster forming the finished piece has hardened you chip away the mold to reveal it.

    I know, right? It's like once he puts the clay on he touches it once with his tool and he's done.
