Wow, and which you still prefer? :)
Water-based clay oder the Chavant oil-based?

Thanks, 
I much prefer working with water based clay for large scale sculpts like this, but for several reasons oil based clay was needed for this particular sculpt.

Hmmm, now the question is: what several reasons? =)

This was a commission that I had to be able to mould and cast up in resin.
I would have been happy to sculpt it in water based clay and fire it as I'm used to doing prior to making the mould......however the size of piece that the customer wanted was far too big to fit into any kiln available to me. I like to fire my water based clay sculpts prior to moulding because they are then very solid and strong and therefore will stand up to the moulding without any chance of damage while I'm handling them.....unfired water based clay sculpts are very easy to chip and damage during the moulding process
So I decided Chavant hard would be the best way to go for this project....it's very hard and can stand up to a lot of handling without much risk of damage to the fine details whilst I'm making the mould.

Ah, okay  - thanks for the quick answer!
Chavant hard? Wow, I've got the Chavant middle and soft - and they're too hard for me ;-D
But I must said, your works are always a masterpiece!
I would be so lucky to sculpt like you :)
Have a nice day!

No problem.....I think I should really have gone for Chavant Medium as it would probably have been hard enough for my purposes, but I managed ok with the hard version and I got used to working with it in the end....it's not too difficult to work with as long as it's warmed up first.

Thanks for you interest in my work and good luck with your own sculpting in the future!
