Hey Guys! Here is one of my current sculpting projects for Warriors. He will be a Wehrmacht Officer reading a map, magazine, flyer or what have you. This is a figure that Bob Letterman asked me to do so I figured I would get started on it right away, besides I have always wanted to do a German subject! As I was working on him and finished the first leg I thought I might as well show you guys how I work. The following four steps will show you the process I do with just about everything I sculpt. #1 Roll the putty onto the armature #2 Smooth the putty with a wet brush #3 Add the rough folds #4 Smooth out the rough folds and refine them Here are the pictures of this process. The first thing I do is apply the putty to the leg, and roughly roll it out with a round tool that has a cone shaped pointy end. When I got the amount of bulk that is required, the putty is smoothed out with a size 1 brush that is moistened with water. Now that the area is smooth it is time to add the rough folds. For the smaller folds a small needle inserted in a wooden handle was used, and for the general and larger folds a tool from the Squadron sculpting set was used, it is like a double edged knife, think two X-Acto #10 blades but blunt side to blunt side (just a whole lot smaller!!). Once I get the folds pretty much the way I want them I use a wet brush to smooth the fold up as well as 'sharpening' the edges. When this is done, more folds are usually added then the initial rough folds. Once all the folds are finished I like to use a small rounded blade (small X-Acto #11 blade) and make some small lines to show wear and add some more detail to it. And here is what the final result looks like! Once it is cured I will go over the folds again with a sharp small round blade (again the mini #11 blade) and sharpen the folds more where needed.
