Figuring out just how big the world's largest papier mache sculpture has to be...and how to make it actually work. #preliminary #sculpture #Lutheran #paper macheRead More
The studio is in sculpture mode! I've been getting out the turntables and making armatures.
While working on this Wanda Gag concept model I'm reminded of the 80/20 principle. 80% of the work gets done in 20% of the time...but then there's that remaining 20% of the work that takes 80% of your time. In this case it's the seemingly endless refinements required. The sculpture as shown here still needs some finishing, but it's time to go to bed...
I find that manipulating the major masses, while a relatively short process, is a time of intensive decision-making. Nobody knows exactly what will happen and that has a way of pulling me in. Proportions and posture require a fully engaged brain. Once all that is safely established, and I'm bringing it through stages of refinement, my thinking gradually relaxes. 80/20 again?
