Okay, here I go again guys just after finishing the Mandalorian now I am starting a full size baby Yoda, I will include a lot of the build and sculpting process which I didn't as I did work on Mando, so you will see each step of the process of this build and I will try and slow down a bit. Like I said this is something that happens as I am sculpting and get into some kinda zone and Bam it is done but I will slow my roll on this process and show work in process so out to the shop I go Enjoy

Okay Starlord Here is what I've been doing today and I really wish I could get this done next day early next week say Tuesday or Wed. we will see I figured baby Yoda to be about 18 inches tall so here is whats happening now Enjoy

i really didn't want this to be to rough of a cut so I just used the jig saw to cut the board in half
IMG_0175.JPG
IMG_0176.JPG
So at this point I had to stop and make a run totally out View attachment 1250565 of hot glue
IMG_0177.JPG
Okay at this point I cut the tube down to 18 inches
IMG_0178.JPG
I really needed these so next I cut some braces to hold the tube a bit stronger
IMG_0179.JPG
so sorry had a bit of shake with my hands so now I hot glue all this
IMG_0180.JPG
and now I foil up this and kinda start shaping
IMG_0181.JPG
So at this point I got to thinking his ears are quite big and I didn't want them to start sagging once clay was being put on so I did this to help
IMG_0182.JPG
IMG_0183.JPG
Now lots more foil sculpting to get a basic shape
IMG_0184.JPG
IMG_0185.JPG
Okay this is about where I want to be at this point he is kinda starting to look a little like baby Yoda so now its off to the sculpting table and lots of clay going on I will post a update after while see what he looks like later so Enjoy

Okay just to let you guys know something about this clay, I Hate it! here is how this clay is its like sculpting with cake icing or thick cake batter but when it drys you cant break it I rolled up a ball of it once dry did a test by slaming it as hard as I could on to the floor what happened It bounced up to the shop ceiling and broke out a shop light and didn't even put a mark or scratch on it but woe is me I have sculpteed like three more faces and came out with this one now to move on to the hands so here you go

I'm thinking the same thing the green on his collar is softer but a bit blueish and did look good, I guess I'm kinda at a experimenting stage which I have been there before and Tuesday will be a better day wont have a 3 year old running around the shop getting into everything but man I love the little fella and he loves what I do making stuff don't mind him being there but you got to watch lots of stuff they can get into and I have 5 other grandsons and just found out I going to get my first granddaughter dang I wont know how to act with a little girl running around so study and research being done on this green and one screen grab I got the light is kinda shining through his ears this is the grab where he looks a bit blueish green well thanks very much for the imput and I did finish up the saber with a little help LOL Enjoy
