  1. Thank you so much for your time Neil and Viking Potter. These are very very useful for me. Best Regards, Belgin
  2. Neil, I can't thank you enough for all this useful information. I hope you have a great creative day.
  3. Thank you for all your thoughtful answers and time. My heads are are about life size and I plan to use 3/4" OD piping. They are also hollow, but I guess I can still build a structure inside the head at the top that would look like a pipe attached to the top and have enough surface area to have the pipe glued to. So my question is how much of shrinkage should I expect while determining the hole/pipe size? And if I were to make a life size hollow human figure and try to support it with pipes would you suggest that I build a structure inside to have the pipe glued to or are there any other smart connectors out there that I can use for large structures like this?
  4. How can I add a metal rod or pipe to a ceramic sculpture after it is fired? Do I need to put holes inside my ceramic heads that I can glue the rods to? What is the most durable and common method? Thank you

    thanks Dr. Perkolator. This was all very useful.
  6. Clay For Large Figurative Sculpture

    Thanks for your response. My experience is mostly oil based clay, yes. I would like to make half life size and life size figures, mostly hollow. It takes a few days to finish a half size figure. For smaller sculptures or sculptures with armatures would the same Lincoln Fire Clay work or do you have other recommendations? Also where do you teach? Thanks
  7. What is a good water based clay for large figurative sculptures? Thanks
