Progress One ~ Part DeuxThe begins of the Sword Gate have commenced! (Again!)At the beginning of last week I received the clay I ordered through the mail.Much to my surprise it wasn't what I had expected. The clay I decided to try is called Clayette by Chevant.I had heard it was one of the best clay's to work with, not sticky (Not to sure about that)and came in 3 different hardness's. I received the hard form and soft.I found myself working with the hard. And really it's not as hard as I would have thought.So I've been trying to leave it in the fridge to harden it a bit but I just found the freezer to be even better.Here is my progress ~Other than changing the type of clay I use, I've been working at this in a whole new wayfrom how I did my first attempt at sculpting this gate.Starting with a square flat piece of clay (4mm x 4mm)and carving out the swirls with a
"Village" SculptureHere's an updated photo~Going to work on the cobble street and then it's time for a bake!I'll be crossing my fingers for no cracks or scorch marks! Eek!
