Although I wasn’t able to just plow through and finish the owl like I had hoped, I got some good “feathering” time in. Who knew owls were covered with so many feathers… sheesh. Suffice to say I’m going to get right back to it to stick to my “plan”:
- Wednesday evening – Finish sculpting
- Thrusday evening – Make mold / cast piece
- Friday evening – Paint piece / buy card
- Saturday evening – Birthday / Get gift
ifwhen unforeseen events pile up too high.
Nah… since when does the unforeseen ever occur – really?
Feathers are the order of business. Theses images show the steps of progress in the detailing the feathers called the “coverts” on the top of the owls wings. I am trying to develop 3 different feather sizes on the owls body: the smallest “contour” feathers on the chest, medium “coverts” on the tops of the wings, and the long “primaries” at the tips of the wings.
So… if I stay on track with my “plan” the next post should pick-up with the head feathers finished and the mold being made, and since things aren’t exciting enough, I’ve purchased a different material to use when I start on the molds.
Wish me luck!
