LEARN THE SECRETS OF MAKING LIGHT STRUCTURES, MODELING VOLUMES AND GIVING FINISHES LIKE A PROFESSIONAL SCULPTOR


Francesca, Italian professional sculptor, performs in front of the camera a sculpture inspired by Michelangelo's david, explaining in detail everything he does and why, putting emphasis on all the stages that allow to carry out a sculptural project, the use of tools and the different materials available. It begins with the use of appropriate photographic references, to then make a structure that governs the entire piece, to build the general volumes with lightweight and resistant materials. You will know the use of stíques for sculptor, the different plastilins, you will see different ways of making smooth or textured surfaces, the use of solvents and much more. You will see how to create hands, faces and bodies with correct proportions.
