Fixing the forearm

Well, I’m definitely not perfect and I am also not afraid to show my mistakes. I do learn a lot from my mistakes and I think posting them on this site also helps others learn as well. If you have been following the tutorials on this site for awhile then you may remember me mentioning that you need to be careful when bulking out a sculpture to aluminum foil. Well, now you are about to get a good example on why I said that.

I think the attached picture explains everything quite well ;-). However the cool thing about polymer clay and mistakes is that you just fix them. Yes it may slow you down a bit but the mistakes none-the-less are still fixable. I ended up having to dig out quite a bit of aluminum foil but it didn’t take too long for me to get back on track.

If you end up making a mistake while sculpting just chalk it up as a learning experience, fix it and then move on. Mistakes really are not the end of the world and in this case was just a little bump in the road.
