Ok, so I am a beginner at sculpting and I mean full blown on sculpting. All my past work has been on previous made masks, sculptures, statues, objects, and other stuff. I have never sat down and got a block of clay or what ever you guys use and started sculpting. I have carved on and chipped away and squashed or bonded every thing else other than an original peice.
So I would like to know from everyone Where to start. I will also tell you where I am wanting to go with this too. i am wanting to learn sculpting the human head. I also want to go on to learning to do gel, latex, or silicon masks and props including casting from my own sculptures. Now I know this is allot many of these things I have already done, with someone else's work. I have never done my own. So to start off with.
Clay what kind ?? which is good to mold on ??? I would like to be able to get allot at once and be able to reuse it but be a reasonable price. And I know everyone has there own opinion on this and there (you would just haft to see what works for you answer) but there has to be a common clay or moldable substance out there that everyone has used once or bought it because ether on a budget or they new it would no matter what they where doing and maybe the best they ever used.
I like people saying try it out but hey as many of us are we and I am not made of money. So, if this is not to confusing and you understand what I am trying to say since I am NO expert on this throw a comment this way I will read every ones comment and if the money lets me ill try or buy it too.
So next learning tools I love and work well with dvds sorry can't read and sculpt at the same time. Plus the books get dirty fast too.
Tools what do you use and did you make them or buy them most of mine are well given to me and i could not tell you where they came from or what they are unless they are eating or cooking utensils.
So ya Beginner!
I could give you a run down on what I know and what I have done but you probably would think I am crazy and make no sense. No one ever taught me so I just learned from doing. So I am wanting to get in to making my own stuff (the right way) now and I need to start some where. So if you can help me out and direct me to something good to learn and do Great pour it on.
Sorry this is so long.
Thanks for you time.
