Trying to use air drying clay.
Lately I have been very inspired to try and make more things; maybe it’s the spring?
I’m not that good with clay at all, but I’ve managed to make few little friends. If you are good with clay yourself, please do share your knowledge with me!
This is the stuff I use. Is acrylic paint the best for clay or should I be using something different?
I grab a small piece and model it with my hands. I use some water to make it smoother – again, should I, or should I not?
I also use a wooden tool to remove the ‘wrinkles’.
Then I cut some wire to help my animals to keep the shape or their body parts to stay together.
When I’m happy with the position, I give it the texture I had in mind.
And then I paint it! I probably should let it dry way longer before painting, but waiting when I’m doing something artsy is not my forte. I just can’t stop. I want to keep focus till I’m done.
Overall what I’ve managed to make is cute, but I need to improve a lot so if you have tips for me, let me know. I would love to make a chubby pug next! (The pig in the background started off as a pug haha).
This wasn’t so much a tutorial, but rather a post to ask for tips as I do enjoy making these little things and would love to get better. 😛
