Description

Ideal for the polymer clay dollmaker who wants to convert to high-fire ceramic stoneware OR the ceramist interested in exploring mixed media figurative sculpture and doll art, this 30-page, fully-illustrated PDF document consists of a series of eight introductory appendices detailing everything from resources for purchasing supplies thru a brief overview of all stages of clay preparation, sculpting, and maintaining your studio plumbing to firing and sealing the finished wares in natural beeswax.

The three Beginner Tutorials which follow ("FROG, BIRD, MAUS") are designed to guide the beginning sculptor thru my own process, developed over 25 years of experimentation; the very same method presented to students of my Master Class at the 50th Anniversary NIADA School & Conference in San Francisco, CA in June 2013, which builds upon simple geometric forms and basic concepts to cumulatively encourage the student thru increasingly complex exercises.

30 PAGES OF DETAILED INFORMATION, AVAILABLE AT A SAVINGS OF NEARLY 25% OFF THE A LA CARTE PRICE OF ALL THREE INSTALLMENTS!

Please note also that this listing is for an INSTANT DOWNLOAD of the entire Beginner Tutorial only; no kits or tools are included.

Please note my shop policies before purchasing this item: NO REFUNDS ON DIGITAL FILES.

I have collected a number of instruction books for sculpting with clay. I am sure that these tutorials rise above them all in scope, detailed information, visual interest, and inspiration for the reader. Great!
