  1. Hello, newbie here! Not too long ago, I decided I wanted to make a sculpture for my public library as a part of a Christmas decoration. I have my wooden dowel skeleton fixed up, putting it at 1'-2', and I'm using air dry clay. Problem is that it has been a while since I last used clay, and I don't know where to start WRT applying the clay on the skeleton. I tried putting slabs on it but it was too chunky on the legs and when I got up to the torso, it kept tilting over until it just broke off completely. Now, I added more dowels to the legs and spine, and will be adding more for the torso and violin, but I also need some tips on how to apply the clay, such as: Is it best to bulk it with foil or cotton balls and tape instead of clay? Which sculpting method is best? And should I do more than one? Which parts should I use coiled clay, and which parts should I use slab clay and pinch clay? Is this something I should do in parts for each day, or is there a different timely process? Thank you for the help!
  2. From the album: WIPs

    At least it turned out nearly flawless. Large 12" across, planter from a gritty brown stoneware with off-white slip painting under clear glaze. Formed inside an automotive oil pan with coils.
