The first phase is a rounding off and a detailed picture. Finally, you can save faces, start working on tiny details, facial features, draperies, etc. The sculptures I selected, for example, are very generalized in design. At this stage it should be as small as possible to be pulled as empty as the dirt from the pen will inevitably remain in the picture, and later you have to remove it with a sandpaper or a knife.

For this work are used small chisels of different curves, knives – dice, scalpelike

The second phase is a pampering. In some cases, grinding is skipped. It depends on the artistic intention, the material, the degree of figure detail. Sometimes the final details are done after the preliminary vishqurivania. In some cases, this is justified, although this results in the fact that the cutting tool is quickly dull.

For working with wood, especially soft or light, it is better to take glass or corundum on a woven base, medium and fine grain (red, brown, yellow or white). A great grinding aid will have a drill with a nozzle made of sand paper (cylindrical and disc) and emeralds of stones of different shapes. Sometimes it is logical to use nadfiles, including “diamond” spraying.

Grinding is always done by passing through abrasives with a large grain size to smaller ones.

For this work you will need abrasive paper, sandpaper drilling machine, grinding stone, with “diamond” spray; fillets.

Detailed and great work prepared for finishing

The equipment set up by me is, of course, not the only one, but for me it looks the most practical, so you can have simple figures, and quite complicated sculptures, and if necessary and more thought compositions.

The tool I use is used for fine and middle plastics. When working with hard walls and large shapes, a power chain saw, a bulkhead, a drill and other power tools can be used.

The last type – if you did not work with a sculpture before, or you want to try the new technique, you should start with a simple shape.
