Got paint at the hardware store, to paint the wax hands, to make them look like the clay. Less confusing to the eye that way. I then finished doing the hands for the figures of the Ghost Dance piece at my computer table, in wax. I'm using the wax because it holds detail better than clay at the size I'm doing them.

The toughest part of this clay has been doing the hands.. So small, and a real need for proportion. I finally figured it out. I woke this morning with an idea. Size the hand on my publishing program, Printmaster Gold 18, size them and use the outlines as a guide. Well it worked.. I can still keep my hands sketchy but at least they'll not be awkward.

Been a long absence. I had the workshop last week in Texas and then suffered from an inner ear infection that threw my balance off... But today.. I'm back and feeling great. I am reworking the hands of course and hope to have them done by tomorrow. Just had to scale them to fit the figures.

Working on the hands and just as I was finishing them.. and then actually putting them with the figures.. I came to the realization... they're way to big. So redoing the hands will have to wait till next week. I'm spending tomorrow getting ready for my trip to Texas the next day.. I also decided not to put any videos up till I get back from the workshop. Staying with friends and the last thing I want to do is be working on videos instead of visiting..
