One Seam at a Time

A creative friend reminded me recently that a bucket is filled one drop at a time. A pattern is designed one change at a time.    In working on the Philadelphia Sheppard Baby pattern, I am trying to get the head shape and size right.  I  am on my 5th head version (above is No. 3). With each version, I try to only make one change, so that I can revert to the previous version if I don't like how it looks.

One drop (one Seam?) at a time.

Are you going to make a 3 dimensional mask? Are there flat face Philadelphia Sheppard Baby's? Interesting.J

I'm still thinking of the best way to give her a three dimensional look. You could go the paperclay over cloth route. You could go the drape mold over a plaster face base. The original head looks like it is stuffed with horsehair. The body, too.

I may eventually make a mask to sell. Time will tell what I can get done.
