    SBS: Alice and The Mad Hatter


    by Daniele "Found" Trovato


    Helloooo :)


    So happy today.
    I'm introduce you my last sculpture. My personal interpretation of Alice.

    The Challenge


    Every time I start a sculpture I always feel a feeling of unpreparedness and doubt.
    I never know where I will arrive with the sculpture.

    Sculpting, at least for me, is not a linear process but is a continuous challenge of creativity, technique and interpretation.

    Especially when the subject is Alice in Wonderland, things get tough and difficult.



    I started looking for all sorts of references around the internet, bought books, reread the novel (I swear I really did) and collected photos of girls, cats, rabbits and hats.

    [IMG]

    The more references you have, the more accurate will be your work.

    It was a real challenge.

    The idea





    As a joke I played with some clay....

    The first rough sketch in NSP Chavant



    Firstly I sculpted a very very fast sketch with some plasticine (I love Chavant medium NSP).
    Nothing difficult just followed my inspiration and playing with the clay.

    Just to formalizing the idea.


    After that I started to sculpt Alice ,

    Started to create The Cheshire Cat with some Super Sculpey Original Blend -> baked -> some FIMO+Beesputty (50-50) .
    Sometimes I add some mix quick to make the clay more sticky.

    Joking with my little weird cat

    After that I started also to work on Alice.



    [IMG]

    I love to sculpt the head separately because is the most important part and this allows me to focus myself



    [IMG]


    [IMG]

    Nothing definitive. Just Trying and testing.

    [IMG]

    For the body, I did the same process as the cat. I use Fimo Liquid to attach some fresh clay on the clay previously baked.

    [IMG]

    Before the details I have to "feel" the direction is ok.

    [IMG]

    Testing with the Cat. I changed the Alice's face almost 20 times.

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    Created the body for the Mad Hatter and put all things together just to see all the composition.

    Sculpted the hand of the Mad Hatter with the WhiteRabbit separately

    [IMG]

    White rabbit...so little and tiny.

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    I use often my handmade tool to create some little sausage of clay (it is a piece of plasticglass because it allows me to see the sausage meanwhile I'm creating it)

    [IMG]

    The clock for the little rabbit

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    I wanted to create not a perfect symmetric character. Something little weird.

    Working on the details on Alice.

    [IMG]

    Put the Rabbit with the Mad Hatter



    [IMG]

    The hands are always difficult to sculpt, at least for me

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    To sculpt the hat I used a little piece of aluminum paper with some clay on it

    [IMG]

    A little hole on the Mad Hatter's head.
