WIP: "The Moon is a Reflecting Pool"

WIP => Work In Progress, formed and baked, next steps: sanding and painting
This is a small piece (about six inches wide) that's somewhat for practicing painting techniques for the mask in the other work, but also something that wanted to be made on its own. I also need to add some extra clay to the back of the left side, because it hangs too far down on the right so the droplet isn't quite straight.

Very nice modelling. I made something simular once in a tile. It's around here somewhere...

Don't think too highly of me, the faces are from a mold. :-)
I'd love to see the tile!

I found it. I haven't looked at it in years. I wanted a full moon face but it came out very doll like. I'll take a picture tomorrow. I should have made the face recede into the "Moon" more.

She uses push molds but I don't see why you can't just make the shapes yourself. Follow the links. www.weefolk.com.

Thank you! useful video! I found this link, too, which seems to have a nice technique: http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/face_sculpt.html

I'd bought a push-mold, though, for the ease of it, and for example to use later? I don't expect to use it forever, but it was fun for this piece, using three different sizes of faces. :-)
