Hello Mark! I love this piece! It's very expressive and the hair is gravity-defying!
How tall is the sculpt? For the armature stand, how thick is the tube? I'm thinking of modifying my stand from pvc to metal pipes.
Thanks for the help!

That hair is just awesome, and seems improbable in clay. Well done!

first of all I love your style and attention to detail.  The majority of what I sculpt with is the non-sulfur oil base clay like you have with Venus.   Do you find any advantages to using SS instead?  I've noticed a lot of your work is in SS, do you get a smoother finish with the SS?  Thanks I've added your work to my watch list---love it!

I mostly use SS with the commercial work I do. The smaller scale work. 1/4 life and smaller. Yes, I can get much tighter detail with SS as well. The main reason is I have to make these sculpts ready for production for the company I do the work for. I separate the sculpt into smaller parts that key together, ready for molding by the client. This is much easier to do with Super Sculpey because you bake it solid and can cut it in parts and make the joints.
I like using oil base clay for my fine art sculptures. Larger scale.
Just how I roll :)

Thanks for taking the time to answer me on that, makes sense, I just haven't had much experience with SS.   I really have enjoyed your portfolio,  I'll keep looking for your new material.   Thanks again

amazing! Do you oven bake those as well? I want to try making scales larger than 1/8 but my oven doesn't permit me due to it being small, lol

amazing as always.
I have a question; when sculpting and baking is done, how to you dissasemble your sculptured for moulding?
The finished pieces always look seemless, I was wondering how you do that.
