Did you know? Gold leaf flakes and sheets can be varnished on top of your sculpting clay with Gold Size
Since ancient times, sculpture has been a channel for human expression. In recent century, the variety of mediums to create sculpture has increased; this includes carving, modeling, welding, casting and collage. While the traditional materials such as wood, clay and pottery tools are still used, sculpting material such as Polymer clay colors and air dry clay seems to have burst into the sculpting industry. Like any art supplies category there are specific uses for different types of clays. For instance Polymer clay such as Sculpey and Primo, is a very versatile medium and is popular among artists and crafters. It is an oven-baked clay that is brightly coloured and often you see it made into jewelry or character figurines. The Fimo polymer clay color is the original Polymer clay brand. Materials such as Polymer clay and air dry clay are not too complicated in usage as they don’t need kilns or special glazes to colour them, you can quite simply use acrylic paints. There are special types of varnishes for the Polymer clay but that is about as complicated as it gets.
Great sculptures are recognized and appreciated by a lot of people and they are made with the use of many different mediums. As a team of dedicated artists and crafters we have access to a range of sculpting materials such as traditional clay, the best air-dry clay, pottery tools and so on and we use them all for our own personal use and in our studios. So if you are stuck on an idea to get your artwork complete contact us and we will have you sculpting in no time at all. Because of our passion for the arts we have designed an artist VIP membership that will give you unbeatable prices on all your art supplies and keep you up to date with classes and workshops with some of Australia’s top artisans.
