Dragon Bust by rgyoung Dragon Bust by rgyoung
Monster Clay, roughly 6" tall. I received an extremely generous sample of this stuff last week and I'm head-over-heels in love with it after experimenting with it a bit. This bust was the end-result of that experimentation. Any sculptors out there reading this: I highly encourage you to give this clay a try--it's got some really great properties.

The bust looks really great, nice work.
Monster Clay is awesome, it is all I use now. Even molding it is better, pulls from molds very clean.

Has the gears turning, I haven't done anything with clay in 3 decades. Other than battle with it on jobsites. Or try to get the gumbo off the boots. Is this type only for modeling, or can it be kilned.?

it's only for modeling.. it has a low melting point. If put in a kiln, you'd have a nice big pool of clay hehe

I love this, despite the completely inhuman head and oversized teeth which inhibit expression you can feel a sort of bemusement in the eyes and tilt of the head of the dragon. Its not just a beast, youve made a character here.

I love monster clay with all my dark heart. I strictly use it, if you have a heat gun and run it over the piece lightly on a low heat it will give the piece a nice gloss to it. Also responds well to stencil brushes, to give a lighter shade of texture that's more gritty. I have twenty pounds of it, love it.

awesome piece as well btw!

Yet another sculptor gets sucked into the realm of Monster Clay! I've been hearing everyone rave about the stuff, I really need to try it out myself.

This guy's got a lot of character and attitude.

Cool stuff! How does it hold up to gravity?

Thanks! It's pretty stiff when it's room-temperature, so it holds up to gravity pretty well. It's an oil-based clay, though, so you can't do anything permanent with it unless you get into moldmaking/casting.
