This is the sculpted original of a new knight figure before it goes into the mold. The torso, head and legs are all one piece. The arms are separate and one arm has an attached shield. The base for the figure is also a separate piece. I have taken to calling this figure Sir Megamind - probably because I didn't feel like putting any protective head gear on him and his angular cranium is so prominently displayed. I've used pvc pieces for sockets and joints. The rest of the figure is sculpy with some gesso detailing. The original will probably not survive the mold making process, but hopefully the mold will be successful and there will be lots of duplicates of this figure. Getting the pour holes correct and getting all the right vent outlets is going to be the tricky part.

This blog is about my curious compulsion to create little men in armor. There are so many things that need to be done around the house, leaks in the roof, sagging shelves - and my wife is perplexed as to why I spend my spare time on weekends in a corner playing with sculpey. I plan to post some of the results of my three dimensional doodles on this blog.
