On Wasting Materials

Learning doesn't always mean spending money. If you are trying to gain skills, though, you will often end up wasting some materials in the learning curve. I've learned  that sometimes I just have to sand down a creation I don't like and start over. I did that this morning with a little doll I made a thousand years ago. I peeled the glued on stockinette off, then sanded her face down to an almost flat surface. This gives me a base for a new face sculpt. The previous face was set too high, and I wanted this doll to be a child. Sometimes "wasting materials" is part of the creative process. But it's not really wasted. Let's think of it as tuition for a class.  That feels better.
