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.
