Techniques of Sculpture: Torsos in Clay with Phillipe Faraut
Techniques of Sculpture: Torsos in Clay with Phillipe Faraut
In this tutorial Philippe Faraut demonstrates two different approaches for modeling the human torso in water-based clay. He begins the first with the construction of the bone structure for a male torso on which he then applies each muscle individually. This approach is based on the use of precise measurements which helps achieve a solid structure while eliminating the risk of common mistakes.The second part of the program focuses on the female torso with a more rapid method of construction relying on the use of planes. Each torso exercise is taken to completion including demonstrations on finishing techniques.

These exercises were developed to emphasize the importance of bony landmarks, the relationship between the skull, ribcage and pelvis as well as the general placement of muscles. Run time: 89 minutes. English and French language tracks.

Techniques of Sculpture: Geometry in the Clay Portrait<br>A Class in Construction with Philippe Faraut
Techniques of Sculpture: Geometry in the Clay Portrait
A Class in Construction with Philippe Faraut
This program demonstrates a unique approach to modeling in clay by combining interdisciplinary concepts of geometry and sculpture. Philippe Faraut shows how building a geometric base aids in modeling both realistic and fantasy heads.

This DVD, originally designed for secondary educators, has proven to be invaluable for artists of all levels to acquire speed, precision, and control of the medium of clay. The concept is that by offering an approach based on geometric shapes, the instructor is better able to control the progression of sculpture, particularly the size. This philosophy of teaching how to master the mechanics does not prevent the creative process, but in actuality allows the student to rapidly achieve a solid base and self-confidence which promote creativity. Running Time: 83 Minutes
