Monumental Bust

1 Sep

I made a monumental pedestal and bust torso, then plugged the dried head into the neck socket. This was much easier to make than if I had tried to do it all in one piece.

But the connection between the wet and dry clay will be messy, as the wet clay dries, cracking as it shrinks around the unyielding dry clay of the head. Little cracks are already starting here.
