Not so bad....

sculpting with " Sculpt-It" after all, I think I'm getting the hang of it!!! And the strength of the clay has sold me on it!!!The drying /curing time takes longer, you can't really do the sculpt as fast as you would with other air dry clays,
I let it dry for at least 3 days which is ok for me cause I can work on other things...
Here's DEMMY ( short for Demented hahaha!!?)

Marie Patterson Studio said...

That is one creepy demented clown....and I love him! What is that hair made of?

Flora said...

AHAHA!!! THAT he is!!!Hello Marie!!
He is all made from the Sargent Art's
Sculpt-It! clay. His hair is applied with one of my tools, I was going to smooth it out but decided I liked the way it looked as I put it on and kept it that way.
