I’m starting a new sculpture! I can’t say what it is yet… just know that I am VERY excited. It’s a relief. A beautiful barn wood shadow box frame is in my possession for the project. The rustic wood will match the mood and content perfectly. Above is a picture of my set up. I have a long standing desk that’s filled with the unlikely combo of half computer equipment and half sculpture paraphernalia.

Below is a pic of the somewhat lengthy process of mixing the clay. I blend a mix of Sculpey products in a pasta maker. I use:

1 box Sculpey
1 block white Sculpey III
1 block black Sculpey III

(thanks Smellybug!) I find it makes the best 50% gray surface so you can see all the marks in the surface more easily.
