There is nothing more satisfying than spending three days studying the face of a beautiful young woman and modeling her head out of clay – I should really say attempt to model her head…! I invited 7 local artists over to my place for the three-day workshop and we had great craic – couldn’t have been more fun. Interestingly, after day one you think you’ll have the head finished by day two, however by day three panic sets in you wish there was a day 4! Everyone has a different approach and style and the outcome is equally varied. I’ve cheated and asked the model to come over for a couple of hours so I can do a bit more work. When it’s finished I’ll post the results and our pretty model Sue.
If you haven’t tried working with clay I’d strongly recommend it – very therapeutic. The clay is inexpensive and any kitchen implement and your fingers are all you need as tools for the job.
