Polymer Clay Face – Week 23
While this week’s face doesn’t yet have a name, it is obvious to me that the “voice” in each of my faces has started to develop. My faces are starting to have a characteristic all of their own. Each leans toward specifics features, look, depth, etc. Part of finding your voice is to develop it naturally. It’s not a “learned part” of claying, rather is something that automatically shows up every time you create something.
It shows up without forcing your hand, it’s natural … exactly why it’s called your “voice.” While you can not CHANGE the timber, depth, or octave of your voice, you can use it in a certain way that will achieve certain results. The same is true of your artistic voice. It’s a part of you. You can hone it, work with it, and try to perfect it … but in the end, it’s always a part of who you are.
When it comes to sculpting my faces, not only am I learning what I prefer, but there is most definitely a “look” starting to appear for each of my faces:
- Wide set eyes
- Short foreheads
- Big noses
- Big lips
- Lots of wrinkles
