A Whimsical Bird!
- This course is for all levels.
A Whimsical Bird is the first in a series of courses where you learn how to sculpt with air dry clay. Sculpting a whimsical bird is the perfect way to learn how to use air-dry clay. You don't have to worry about getting it perfect, it's whimsical! Who cares?
In this course, you will learn how to sculpt a whimsical bird. We will cover:
1) the basic tools needed
2) forming a simple armature for your sculpture
3) adding air dry clay to your armature
4) smoothing your sculpture
5) adding a base and sanding your sculpture
6) painting and embellishing your sculpture
I have over ten years experience sculpting with air-dry clays making anything from a life-sized Scooby Doo to miniature mermaids and art dolls and I am a member of the Creative Paperclay Design Team. My clay of choice for this course is Creative Paperclay® simply because it is my favorite clay to work with. However, this course is no way affiliated with Creative Paperclay® Company.
I have uploaded the PDF of the supply list and a template you can print and use to help you shape the armature for your bird. The template is letter-sized.
