What Tools I use to Sculpt With and Kind of Clay

I show the tools I use to sculpt with in this video. An artists tools are so important. Bad tools get armature results. If you want to become more professional in you creations in clay, tools, and their quality make a huge difference. I also talk about the clay I use and how I soften the Plasticine so I can use it. This clay is non hardening.

The Viking Making a Silicone Tipped Sculpting Tool and Signing My Clay

Maive Ferrando produced a video, that introduced me to "SILIGUM". It's a Silicone based mixture that you can mold into smoothing tools that won't stick to clay. It Sets up in 5 minutes.. but actually mine took about an hour to set up. Here is a link to her video.
I then finished up the Viking for the Foundry.

The Viking Filling in Holes and Fine Tuning The Hair

Putting the finishing touches on THE VIKING today. Need to make the clay more foundry friendly. What I mean by that is filling in holes and cracks and deep recesses in the clay. Anything that requires extra time to take care of in the production of a bronze will end up hitting my bank account. So time taken now to refine the clay will save the foundry time when the produce the bronze copies. This bronze will be in a limited edition of 40.
