HELP!




So... for my head and figurative sculpture class, I'm required to do a master copy study, and 3 study of anyone i like and then combine it into one sculpture. If you reed my little notes on my drawings you can kinda figure out what I'm up to...

So i had to back track a little, with my initial idea of doing it all in water base clay, was a huge problem. For one , the bottom most piece is dried solid and it would be to brittle for the entire sculpture to stand , or sculpt all together. I only realize this going all the way to Townsend to ask if it will work, answer NO.

Solution!
Super sculpy it is.. asides touching it for fun years ago... I'm still rather clueless about!

I welcome any comments and suggestion to how the final sculpture looks or anything that may help me with the process...

I'm also wondering about my armatures, i was wondering if that armature would hold my piece, the dotted lines within the sculpture will be filled with aluminum foil, to block whatever mass that i don't need to waste too much clay in.. and then later remove it an use another type of clay to mount it on the bottom piece that's already done and by then fired, which i will paint over if i have time!
