Virtual Sculpture Marathon – with Bruce Gagnier & Guests
In this Marathon, we will make a 32 “ figure in clay or plastilene on a 30” armature from memory reference and imagination together. Photographs, books and drawings can and should be consulted while working. The Instructor will demonstrate my working methods from start to finish and we will discuss what each is thinking about. The Instructor will also make study sketches in drawing and talk about the use of this method as a source of change. Wet clay or plastilene can be used. The Instructor will be using Chavant Monumelt. Roma # 1 is also a good choice. It is best to buy at least one case. The wet clay is cheaper and you should also buy one case (2 packages) or even 3 packages. If you are using wet clay, you should have cloth to wrap the figure with each night. The Instructor will show how to soften the Plastilene to get started.
