    Hey, cool ones. I started doing some clay miniatures just for fun couple weeks ago. I must admit they are more than helpful.

    Just a hint, have you tried stuffing wires with aluminum foil instead of paper. It seems to work better, at least for me

    Are you gonna let us see the results .

    Tin foil or paper, tin foil or paper...........mmmm, papers cheaper!

    A friend of mine swears by the tin foil for what your talking about. Hes been doing this for about twenty years. It sounds like your using the right method.

    Will show making of next one. Within few days. Foil don't tend to unwrap as paper does, that's what I found

    Thanks....

    Actually, that was just a test, to try to visuallize the final product. I didn't sculpt the fringe onto the finished figure. I used vinyl cut from a shower curtain for the test. I think it would be better to use a piece of soda can cut into the shape. The sculpting on this is done and it is currently being cast as a resin model kit.

    Marvellous work in this thread guys... Graham, your art always conveys a sense of sponteneity and a balance between observation and imagination.

    2BitSculptor, checked out your website and the images are amazing. You're a talented figurative artist. Interesting you should mention Organica... are you saying you're still involved or have you given up on it? I remember trying it years ago, it was an embryonic 'clay modeller' like a primitive version of Zbrush and incredibly memory hungry. Created my first 3D figure in 1999 importing an Organica mesh into Lightwave. I'm a bit embarrassed by the result but for a newbie it felt more intuitive than poly modelling which before Lightwave's MetaNurbs used to feel like welding steel plates together

    Great to see more organic character work on the forums.
