Comparisons of the head shrinkage. The original was sculpted a little big so I could add more detail. Then I cast that mold with the liquache and DC comp so I could pick the best from the two. Liquache holds more detail and is very smooth compared to the DC comp. I also like the size best. My next step will be to make a mold from this head and use it for the final cast in porcelain.
So close to porcelain!

While I'm waiting for my molds to cure, I decided to make a ball jointed version of my Petite Ana. She is a character I've been sketching for years. She always seems to find her way into my work. She came to life in a 3D papier mache version and now she need to become a ball jointed girl.

No 3 head cast in liquache. Needs some refining then I'll make a new and final mold. From the final or master mold I'll cast no 3 in porcelain.
I'm very excited to finally work with porcelain.Over the past few weeks I've been researching Kilns and all the needed equipment to make it happen. It's a big step but I think I'm ready.
