Time to Start Making!

The time has finally come to create my structure maquette.

Below is a step by step guide to how I did this. All photos are my own, as is the structure.

So firstly I created the foil rough base by screwing it up tightly. After the ball was fairly secure I began to kneed pieces of Super Sculpey into my palms until warm and malleable, I then plastered the pieces onto the surface of the tin foil and flattened them out with my warm fingers so they looked smooth like one piece of clay, not many.

After there was enough clay to cover the foil I began sculpting the basic shape of the heart and started using ‘tools’ such as chopsticks and a needle (great tools, I know).

This is my progress so far, I will be updating this process in one of the following posts.
