In this project. I have to make a plaster cast of my hands and feet and then cast them in latex. The head is just going to be baked. In order to make plaster casts, i've first got to sculpt the hands out of sculpey. At this stage, the hands have to be the best they can possibly be, as in the process of casting, a lot of the quality will be lost (especially as this is my first attempt of casting)
I am happy with the quality of the hands at current. Luckily my character is, to put it politely, overweight. This means my hands will be bulky and not a lot of detail is needed on the knuckles. I have chosen to add finger nails, but these may get damaged in the casting process. The general idea of spending countless hours sculpting the hands/feet just to destroy them in order to make a cast which might not even work is nerve wracking, but hopefully if I stick to each stage and not rush anything it'll all work out! The next hand post will be the casting process.
