This little lady has been trotting around my mental menagerie for some years now...she's actually still in there but has been almost crowded out by the faeries and beasties...After I did the painting of her I decided she'd make a great garage kit. I sculpted her in initially in wax then finished her in car body filler, moulded her and turned this one out...because I am possibly the most lazy artist on the planet the whole garage kit idea never happened..the moulds rotted away and she now gathers dust on my studio shelves.
I've been toying with the idea of sculpting a full sized version of her lately...if only I wasn't so damn lazy!!!!!

Lil-Divil Sculpt by *Kaduflyer A sculpt that has garnered many favorites already; however, it is a piece that all sculptors should study and learn from--the magical imagination of this artist and the exquisite and lifelike detail rendered here has resulted in a stunningly beautiful creation.

Car body filler?  I  think I've only used that on, well, "soap box derby" cars.  The "plastiline wax", I can't say I've heard of before.  What do the colors come from?

The colours are simply acrylic paints. The model you see here is from the original moulds (the only one I ever got out) and is made of urethane plastic and painted with acrylic paints.

What kind of wax did you use for this? I've been looking at modeling waxes and love your results here.

The material I use is a plastiline wax made by J.Herbin. They are a French company but you can order their products of the web, you'll just have to check they deliver to your particular neck of the woods. Of course there are many, many types of materials on the market that you might also enjoy using. "plastiline' is simply a generic term for an oil or wax based synthetic clay so don't assume because it has that name it's the one I use.
A very popular material at the moment is 'Monster Clay' (not least of all because it has the word 'Monster' in it's title!) and it has tyne advantage of being quite widely distributed world wide. I always encourage people to try as many different products as possible…find what's right for YOU. I love the materials I use and use nothing else…others hate them, there is is no right or wrong, each artist is different that's all.

Hope this helps some…if you need any further advise please feel free to write, I promise to newer quicker next time!

All the best

Dave
