Sculpting a Rooster Portrait with WED Clay, Plaster Cloth and Magic Sculpt

Play Video

I just started on a sculpture of a rooster, using WED clay, plaster cloth, and (next video) Magic Sculpt epoxy clay.

I used the materials I had on hand. If you’d like to make a rooster portrait and you don’t have these materials, watch the video to see how you could achieve the same thing using items you already have in the house.

If I forgot any, please let me know. 🙂

Be sure to watch for the next post – I’ve already started removing the clay from the inside of the plaster cloth shell, and I’ll begin adding the Magic Sculpt during puppy’s afternoon nap. This fellow should be done in a day or two.

And if you make a rooster sculpture, please come back and show it off on the Daily Sculptors page. We’d love to see how it comes out.

  1. Great! Can’t wait to see step 2! I now have an excuse to step away from what I’m working on — to let it settle in my brain! Actually, I left a project I’m working on overnight and this morning did see it with new eyes. It is a great suggestion to help “see” what one is creating. Thanks.

    Love the kitty who is getting ready to take over.

    • Yes, the epoxy clay is waterproof. I don’t think my rooster will go outside, but my squirrel is made with a different brand of epoxy clay and he’s been outside, summer and winter in Minnesota, since 2016 – and he still looks exactly the same as he did the day I made him.
