Sculpting the Mermaid and 'Clops

Started slapping clay onto the mermature and roughing out a feminine shape. Also removed the wooden eyeball from the Seaclops sculpt, ended up having to resculpt the bottom eyelid which had to be removed to get the ball out. Clops is now ready for molding. Here are some detail shots...

Looking great, Jeff. How's come you don't mold the pupp with the eye ball in place and then slice it out after casting, oh wait, I see, you're using the eyeball cavity as support for the actual ball placed in a cast. You're not making a latex shell to fill. You're making a solid pupp, right?

Yup, he'll be cast in solid foam latex...going to paint up the wooden ball like an eyeball, coat it in shiny clear coat, then pop it into the foam casting....only thing I'm worried about is undercuts around the opening, but since I'm casting in foam, which has a bit of give, I dont think I'll have trouble pulling him out of the plaster (ultracal) mold...
