Red-tail Armatures Sculpted and Fired

Red Tail Armatures Baked1

You will recall the wire armatures that were displayed in the last “Post”. They have now been covered with the polymer clay, detailed, and fired. There is still a bit of detailing to do, but that detail will be done with sandpaper, or grinders to remove material, and more clay to add missing detail. It would have been great to have been able to totally finish the detailing before baking, but the polymer was so soft that whenever I’d detail one section I would destroy another.

Now that the feet are solidified, I can fit the legs back onto the Hawk, anchor them in place, and finish the detailing. Hopefully this will make my life a lot easier.

Incidentally, after this Newsletter, I will only be “Posting” to the Western Artist Facebook site, and no longer to the Stonewall or the Mohican Valley Artists Facebook accounts. If you want to be sure to see the rest of this project, and you haven’t “Subscribed” to the Western Artist’s Newsletter, you should consider doing so. (The “Subscription Sign-up is in the right column of this Newsletter and it’s It’s Free.) That way every time I publish a new Newsletter, you will be notified through your e-mail account.
