I'm creating a bronze of a woman hiker. Today I continued working on the ladies face.. fine tuning it and then smoothing it with Lighter Fluid.. I think she's looking like the lady I've been asked to do.. Tomorrow I'll be finishing up the face.. then attaching it to the full figure.

I'm creating a bronze of a woman hiker. Today I tried for the 3rd time to create her face from photos supplied to me.. It's still got a ways to go.. but I feel this time I started to get her features sketched in. I'm spending more time on the face than Intended to, but I feel I need to.

I'm creating a bronze of a woman hiker. Today, I added the first clay to the armature.. The making of the armature I made out of wire, is going to featured in a new Instructional DVD and Streaming video, showing how to make Wire Armatures for several different projects. Human and Animals. That Instructional DVD is in Production now. Keep an eye out for it, in the near future.

Started an armature for a 16 inch tall figure today. It's part of a commission I'm working on. I figure as long as i'm making this armature, I might as well do an Instructional DVD where I share my knowledge gained from over 50 years of making armatures. So for you, this is merely a short tease of my Video on Making Armatures for Clay Sculpting. I finally got my other Canon camera fixed so now I can offer two views of me working... a few years ago, the one camera stopped locking in my memory card... I took it to a Camera Repair place and they sent it out to get an estimate on getting it fixed. It was almost as much as buying a new camera. So I just had the camera in my Van all this time. Well the other day.. I thought why not get it looked at again.. and this time the camera guy saw that there were a couple of small pieces of plastic from a memory card in the bottom of the slot that holds the memory card.. He removed the pieces.. I got a new Memory Card and now it's working again.. I'm so happy to be able to give my viewers a second viewing point in my videos.

I get countless requests for where to buy ready made human armatures. Well the one source I had has dried up. So I've decided to show how to make wire armatures for creating clays. This will be a new Instructional DVD on which I'll include making and plotting out armatures for human, and some animal armatures.

A friend of mine asked me to do a portrait of a friend of theirs in clay. The figure has to be 18 inches tall all together.. The figure is to be 16 inches tall.. It's a surprise so I can't put the video up on YouTube for fear that person would see it. So I'll be not making videos for a couple of weeks while I work on it. Well that's how it is as of today.. That may change.. so don't leave me.. haha
