Converse boots… sole to go…
The upper part of the converse boots have been completed which was a complete pain and very fiddly!
The lower part will be made using latex in the hope that the sole will be bendy… I want Clara to be able to bend her foot (the ball & socket ‘feet’ are able to bend at the toes which aids walking with tie-downs) plus the latex should enable me to add a hole for the tie-down (I forgot to add it to the mold- oops).
The white band around the shoes are just pinned on at the moment and I’m hoping it will look better once everything is glued into place but I need the soles before I can do that.
I’ve brought some mohair to try to make a better head of hair – I think I might have got the wrong type though as the label says that it’s only 30% mohair… looks a little stringy to me – might have a quick go just to see if it would be better than the woolly mass that Clara is currently supporting.
I’ve printed off some wallpaper patterns to add to the lounge – I’ve built a stage platform which is raised off the ground to enable me to reach the tie-downs. (I’ll post up a photo soon)
I could only print at A3 which is too small… will have to look at some budget printing company to see if I can get a larger size.
I need to build a small walk way ‘stage’ … this would be all green/blue screen as I want Clara to walk along it and then add the background later in final cut pro.
I have several other projects that I need to get on with but I’m trying to get Clara completed up to a point.
- hair/head finished and attached to body.
- boots finished.
- Clara’s notebook (complete with sketches)
- Clara’s favorite handmade toy (The product of her imagination and what kickstarts the whole story!)
- walk-way (for opening scene)
basically ready to try the opening sequences which then means I can practice the green/blue screen techniques and how to do some blending of the shots.
I do seem to be going rather slow at the moment… very annoying!
