This little droid is a Christmas present for my friend Rhonda, AKA Rhonda2D2. Ever since Star Wars: Uncut, Artoo has made me think of her, so I hope she gets a kick out of it.
It’s funny how the different colors mold differently. The white clay was much softer and more pliable—to the point where it was impossible to get my fingerprints out of it—than, say, the black, which crumbled in my hands no matter how much I kneaded it first.
This is the first sculpture I’ve baked since the puppet heads from the film shoot, so I was a little worried it would crack, but it came out beautifully. Working in color is much more time consuming, but the finished product looks so much nicer, wouldn’t you say?
