Lets look at one way of wrapping the hand around the support rod and an object (the vine).
Once again we start with a wedge shaped piece of clay with a bevel on the end.
The palm and wrist of the hand is opened and widened enough to attach to the rod.
Using the back of the sculpting tool (or any flat tool) the fingers are flattened onto the vine by applying pressure between the joints to keep the planes of the fingers intact as you shape them around the vine.
Next we will look at the legs and feet. Have a great day!
