Back to Sculpey

without comments

I’ve been playing with Super Sculpey again. This week I got back in to skulls.  I hadn’t done that in a while.  This was my first attempt at recreating the various foramen underneath, and still keeping a mandible in place.  It didn’t come out perfectly, but I’m pretty sure that I could get it the next time now.

I still need to make one perfect one, so that I can recreate them in a mold and have my very own basket of pocket skulls.  I still think it’s the perfect study aide for students trying to learn the foramen.  When you’re a student, you learn to treasure the things that you can take with you on the bus, or just walking around that let you review certain basics in those spare minutes of your day.  Maybe next week, I will do this right, once and for all.

In the meantime, it’s been good getting some practice in with sculpting in general.  I think that I may always come back to skulls for this purpose.  They can be as complex as you care to make them, or not.  And really, everyone loves a skull.  🙂
