New character study for a private project

Mini Sculpture - Norman

It's been such a long time since I've done any sculpting, So I spent last weeks rainy Sunday building this little fella.

I love working with Super Sculpey, the clay is so fine and just made for adding details.
I started with modeling the head on a length of armature wire to keep everything in place - it's what allows the little Norman soldier to stand up on one foot. By the way I say 'Norman' I'm not 100% on his historic accuracy!

I part fired the head just to keep the details, before working on the body.

Arms Shield and sword added, really to be popped in the oven. Below - painted using Acrylics - they do some great Metallic paint now.

If anyone has any questions about how I made him, drop me a mail, I'm no expert mind, just winging it! :)
