Re: Clay Warmer designs

Put the clay in a tin foil lined box, and put it in the oven with the light on.
The light bulb in an oven provides quite a lot of heat. During the summer I put it outside. I live in New Mexico where it is hot, but have lived in Iowa, and it is hot enough to melt clay there too.

Re: Welding: How they got around it

I am very saddened that there is not more activity in these forums. I notice that some people from Sculptors community are on this site. Richard I like your dog figures a lot. I am still not at the level (nor do I have the landlord's permission) to melt metal in the back yard. I am crossing my finge...

Re: Welding: How they got around it

Thanks Richard. I am always interested in techniques and materials. Welding is ubiquitous these days, but it was unknown when a lot of the ancient pieces were made. I am also interested in the fact that after the dark ages, the artists and craftsmen had to re-learn everything over again.

Welding: How they got around it

I have a "Minor" in art history, and have always been interested in Materials and technology of artists. Here is a favorite: How Renascence artists got around their inability to weld large sculptures together. I hope that this is what you want when you say "new technologies and old.&q...

Re: checking in

I keep getting kicked off and need to re-log in each time I want to Post. The error message on your post said I did not have the required permissions to view the photo of closeup of Bernini. When I logged in, I could see it.

Re: Barn Owl

So far, the only images I have been able to actually get up on this message board are direct links. The IMG tag does not seem to work.

Re: Hello

Hi Mantrid, you're over there at Russ Rupert too. I like that bronze age horse you did, and the tutorial is a really good one.

Re: Showing your work

I can see this is a new site, thus not much going on. I hope to be able to help change that since I think figurative sculptures need a separate site like this one. With sculptors like Richard McDonald inspiring young artists (and not so young as well) to turn to figurative art, I feel than many more...
