The Indian rhino that I made last month, using plaster cloth and my new air dry clay recipe, is now finished. She was coated with Sculpt Nouveau iron coating, sprayed with Tiffany Green and Darkening patinas, and then glazed with warm grey acrylic paint mixed with Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid. I like her a lot, so I might skip the idea of taking a photo and using it to make a poster for my wall – maybe I’ll just keep the sculpture, instead. Haven’t decided…
The doll book is almost done, and I also mention two excellent books that you can use to increase the interest of the painting surface on your sculptures. You can find the books here:
And – if you have any ideas for a video class series that you think would be a lot of fun, let me know in the comments section. I’m doing most of my gardening this year in the non-circulating hydroponic system that you saw on my front porch, so I’ll have a bit of spare time to do something fun. Maybe it should be something big this time? I did order some latex mold material that is relatively cheap, so if anyone would like to do something along those lines, even with concrete instead of paper mache, I’d be up for it. Let me know your ideas.
