You can do some pretty cool stuff with it once you learn its property's. I've seen other sculptors do some mind blowing stuff with it. This female sculptor done a highly realistic piece that was about 12 wide by 7 or 8 inches high of this woman sitting on a bed. She done the finest details I have ever seen, down to the cloth material with flower patterns, leafs ect. Once I seen that, I realized there was a lot more to it then I thought. Cause it gets messy as hell and you can slop the detail by touching it.
Wow! Haha, I alway's thought it was very hard to do details like that! It realy allows the artist to allow their imaginations and stories come alive and be felt by others! I love that characteristic that some artists can achieve with clay, or sculptors in general! I would love to see that sculptor that the female you're talking about, did! It sounds pretty cool to see in person! Congrats to being able to make your imagination come alive!
