I have always wanted to do encaustic figurative sculpture, and I have finally started working on some. I probably should not post these images, because if I proceed how I have in the past, I will never finish them. I have gotten further this time than I ever have though. This first image is paper clay, a lampshade, a cardboard tube and a net skirt from a doll. It is ready for encaustic now.
The next figure is composed of paper clay, a cage of wood strips like you make for a Santos doll, and plaster cloth. I am not sure where it is going next. I am thinking of trying window screen to make a skirt.
The last figure started with a wooden figure that you use to pose differently to practice drawing. I should have taken a picture of it first. It is wrapped in many layers of plaster cloth and is not yet ready for encaustic. As with my paintings, I do not really have a plan, and I just have to figure out what the next step will be. I think it is easier to be an intuitive artist when painting than it is for this kind of work. I fear I should have had a plan! I will post new images as the project develops.
