Human Children Figure-Starter Casts™

Description: Available for sale are one-sixth life-size and one-quarter life-size children Starter Casts™ (in three different ages and sizes). They’re ready  to be transformed into any body or any thing the artist desires.  The dry and hard casts are in halves (front and back) in proportion, but minimal in detail—ready for trim and assembly.

The assembled sculpture will be hollow inside, making it strong, but lightweight. Some Project Lessons™ or the “Creating Prairie Edge Hunt” DVD is recommended for even advanced artists who are new to the Eckman Method®.  You will need to order EFA paper and bonding agent to assemble the casts and to pose and smooth the figures. You can also use hard paper to detail the sculpture.   Below are a few examples of Patty Eckman’s work. You can see how a Starter Cast™ can be posed and detailed to finish.   E-mail or call us if you have any questions about what you want to do, and what art materials you need to accomplish your project.
