Sculpture kit: armature, clay, tools, 1-2-1 tuition and more!



Stay home and safe and get into sculpting with my original Stay Home Sculpting Kit. This is far more than just a kit: you will receive an armature, a manual, access to Youtube tutorials and demos, model reference images, and two live 1-2-1 video calls with me to guide you along and answer any questions you have. Sculpting makes the hours just fly by, keeping my brain active and engaged. You too can now learn how to sculpt a life-size portrait in clay with this Stay Home Sculpting Kit. The method of sculpting I will be teaching you is based on observation. No measurements of the model are required. This allows you to be free with your sculpting and train your eye. You will be able to Fire or Mould and Cast your sculpture. I will be teaching the method for firing during this course.
