I bought a block of Chavant Non Sulferated Plasteline clay about 10 years ago, with the intentions of getting into sculpting fantasy maquettes. 10 years, and it sat on my bookshelf collecting dust! Well, last week I finally started. Better late than never eh? I built my first armature, and am looking forward to spending some time actually sculpting this weekend. The picture below is of the armature about 50% finished. I created the armature based on a method used by the Shiftlett brothers, which makes use of floral wire wrapped around the main aluminum wire to give it added strength and more surface area for the clay to adhere to.
