Hi all.
If anybody is interested i might start to post some Wips when i sculpt stuff.No its not a shop window for my commercial releases.Just trying to maybe generate some interest if anybody might take the plunge and have a go at sculpting.Sculpting takes a fair bit of time to do and indeed master.Im a care for my wife so im fairly busy and will try and post as much as i can.
Cheers from Richard

Great idea Richard,
I like sculpting too but it takes a lot of time indeed, so it's been a while.
Looking forward to your see your wips and tips, have fun :thumb2:

I'd love to see how you go about it Richard. A dark art to me and any tips that might help improve my figures would be most welcome.

Hi Richard
Although l may never sculpt anything I would enjoy seeing how it's done. I am sure your approach will be useful when just altering/adapting figures.

I'd be interested in the process of sculpting - it's not something I've ever attempted, and I'm curious as to how it is done properly

Always open to a good SBS. I find I can usually make use the skill somewhere, even if it isn’t in making a full sculpt.

Sounds like a good idea. Unfortunately the member that started the Master class series stopped posting so it would be great if you could Richard.
But as the name Master class indicates, please go into as much detail as you can in the posts.

Great to see you running this blog Richard. Will you be covering off adjusting 1/35 scale figures with new limbs at all?

Hi Steve.
I dont dabble in 1.35th.Im usually into 1.12th and 1.10th busts.Converting 1.35th plastic figures and 120mm ones by Dragon is a great way to start sculpting.

Hi Guys.
Im touched by the interest in sculpting blogs.Theres a but,Ive only seriously been sculpting for 3 years this August.I feel im not a Master to provide tomes of wisdom and advice.Ive only sculpted busts and never sculpted arms or hands on anything yet.Sculptors like Carl Reid and Maurice Corry have done this for 30 years.Id feel like a charlatan trying to sound like a true expert.
Hope you all understand.I can give advice on Materials and appraisals of them ive used.Putties are a personal choice for example and I might like say Magic Sculp and another might hate it..
The thing i advice on anyone contemplating it is watch youtube videos by Greg Girault and Ebroin song and get good anatomical references to start making basic manequins.
Stay safe and Happy New year to all.Heres to a better 2021.
Richard
