Sequel to the modeling of my figurine of the astronaut, hero of Catyph.
Yesterday I shared with you the tools, and some of you asked me
what I was planning to do exactly with the copper wire. The answer is in
the photos: I create a kind of skeleton. It’s very basic but makes
things much easier in order to build the figurine. This step is very
important and will define the pose of your character. For example here, I
can tell that I made his legs a bit too short… Then I create balls of
dough that I roll more or less, smaller or bigger, to create strands
that I attach to the copper skeleton. Easy as it seems!
When the Fimo paste is starting to be delicate to manipulate, I
heat it in the oven, 30min 110°C. When it’s done and cold again, I add
more dough strands and balls, sometimes very very small to create the
details (buttons, belt…), then I heat it again, and so on, until the
modeling is finished! Anyone can do it.
