I worked briefly today to pose a few armatures on to their wooden bases. I rarely cut corners in my technical processes, but since these sculptures are not intended to be the finished product I allow myself to create lower maintenance armatures. Instead of putting together a pipe and flange to hold the figure on the base, I opt to use thicker armature wire that allows the figure to stand freely. I attach the armatures by bending nails across the armature wire.
The goal for the month of December is to sculpt 16 figures from which I can create compositional studies from in January.
