This Elf is having a lot of fun with his Fish and it also will be a lot of fun to make him!

All the sculpted parts will be sculpted with Creative Paperclay. The total height of the piece is 13 inches/ 32,5 cm

Also for the students who did already other classes with Marlaine there are alot of new techniques to discover like:
- the sculpted legs (the piece stands on its own)
- sculpting wrinkles on the socks and on the hat
- the special painting technique with opaque white over water color paint

Class schedule:
Week 1. Sculpting the fish around a styrofoam egg with cardboard and sculpting the legs
Week 2. Sculpting the head and the hands
Week 3. Painting the doll and the fish with watercolor and white gouache
Week 4. Finishing the doll: fabric body, clothing and details

The class includes a video about making the fish.
