Sculpture continued....

The process goes on... Much of the time has been devoted to experiments, many of which were unsuccessful. For example, mixing plaster of paris with Insta-clay produces a weaker substate than either separately. The pants were quite a challenge but came out pretty well. The jacket is the next big hurdle. It is like trying to make doll clothes. The hat and right hand are an experiment in applying liquid clay to dried plaster. (So far, so good.)

Oh My Goodness! This is so artistic! You have captured the subtleness of the delicate folds of his soft pants. His hat looks as if it has been hand buffed to a mirror shine. There is new expression in his face as you cleverly proceed. Your technique is simply amazing!
