Another Fast Giant Portrait – Playing Around With Clay

Another book about Giants gave me a new excuse to play around with clay. 🙂

I really didn’t need any DIY art therapy today (the moose has decided to cooperate with me) but I still wanted to get my hands in the clay. It really does feel good. If you haven’t done any just-for-fun clay sculpting lately, you’re missing out!

I actually have a whole drawer full of sculpting tools. You sure couldn’t tell from this video, could you? 😊

Links to stuff used or mentioned in the video:

  • If you didn’t see the previous giant portrait video, you can find it here.
  • If you’re looking for a faster, sillier way to sculpt faces, be sure to check out my book Fast Faces: Unleash Your Creativity With a Friendly Lump of Clay, available on Amazon.co.
  • If you’d like to use my face sculpting form, you can find it here.
  • The Giants book I used today for inspiration.
  • WED clay.
  • Clay from your local pottery supply store is fun to work with, too – and it’s a lot less expensive.
  • DistortionsUnlimited has a great video on YouTube explaining the benefits of sculpting with wet WED clay here: https://youtu.be/gBc7Ey3oSkQ
  • And check out my sculpting patterns (for the paper mache masks and sculptures behind me in the video).

Have fun!

  1. It looks like you are using regular clay. Are you or is it paper clay? I would like to try it either way. Thanks for your demo.
