Ballerina Push Mold Project – Part 1B

ballerina-strapped-in-5 ballerina-strapped-in-4

I filled the push mold completely and removed the clay figure.

Then I finished the head, feet and hands on toothpicks, as I have done in many of my other courses.

I created the armature wire and attached the lower body and thighs and lightly sculpted them into a pose.

Using paper strips, I seat-belted her onto an oven-safe tiny pie pan that is about the same height as her ultimate sitting stage.

I carved away some of the clay around the area where the thighs connect with the lower torso so I can add fresh clay when she is in her final pose and then I will have much more control over the final shape and smoothness of the clay skin.

I baked this lower half of her body in the oven for 10 minutes at 250 degrees.
