I've realised that the 'thing' sitting on my desk looks like the demonic spawn of an orgy on Planet Clanger. But not to worry. It'll all be hidden eventually. I was itching to get the clay out but I needed to sort its dodgy hip joint first. Rummaging in a drawer I found a packet of Milliput that's almost as old as I am and mixed a dollop of it to wrap around the hip joint.
Now, I've read about two different ways of sealing the foil before adding the clay. One is to cover the foil in masking tape, the other to seal it with pva glue. So, which to choose? In the end I thought 'Well, both can't hurt' so started wrapping the foil in strips of masking tape. Now I've got the mummified demonic spawn of an orgy on Planet Clanger...
It's weird sometimes how inspiration presents itself. Having made the decision to start a sculpture, someone shared a photo on Facebook of a sculpted piece I'd admired on DeviantArt, which led to more pictures and more links, and before I knew it my enthusiasm had doubled after seeing all these fabulous pieces, and taking another look at some of my favourites. Feast your eyes while the glue dries....
