New ! Mandan indian Nov./ Dec. 2007

Sculpted and painted by Alan &Marion Ball

Another totally scratchbuilt figure in 90mm, various putties were used , as is usual with these figures, I wrk on several at a time, and mix a putty for one , the "left overs" from the figure the putty was intended for are used to continue work on others ( so too much of any particular isn't wasted ) .....
hence sometimes my figures can look something of a patchwork ....
something you get used to looking at when working on them .it's simply a case of seeing the "forms and details" rather than letting the colour of the material distract you .
painting again is by Marion of course.
