Poor Cap'n Cavy was stuck under moist paper towels and plastic for weeks, but I got reinspired to work on him again these past couple of days. I'd say he's undergone quite a transformation since the last time I posted a progress shot--he was a head, a round body, and two legs with one boot.
I still have a ways to go, but am liking this direction. ♥ He stands about 7.5" tall.
I'm having a real hard time with this clay body. Clay Art Center of Tacoma's redart with mica is pretty, but lousy for handbuilding, when compared to their seward terracotta. Lesson learned...
So, here he is! Remember, he's still not finished!
(Hnngh...my poor hands.)
