I remember taking a sculpture class for a semester in middle school and loving it. Whenever I’ve had the opportunity to work with clay ever since, I’ve jumped on it. However, I never had time to work with this medium until now.
Since I do not own a kiln, at least not yet, I use a natural clay that air drys. After the sculpture has completely dried, I sand it using two different grades of sand paper. I remove all the fine dust, paint it using studio quality acrylic paint, and then varnish it.
I sell most of my sculptures locally, however, I sell a selection of them on Etsy.
