bjarki12: Sounds interesting. Yes, I am actually going to make some sculptures for Christmas presents, with real clay. (It's Mont Marte air-drying) It will be interesting to see how the two compare - given I haven't used 'real' clay before.
I have various sculpting ideas, though, and sometimes carving actually works better for me.
Say, what was the wax like to work with? That sounds so interesting, and I'd be very interested to see some WIPs and photos.....
And sure, I can have a go at an armament tutorial. At the moment I just have to get this month out of the way, and finish all my assignments, but then I should be able to do some more claywork in Dec. Be happy to post some.
