What kind of clay and silicone do you use and what are some of your sculpting and painting techniques?

Most professional artists have learned and/or developed trade secrets and techniques through schooling, labor, hard knocks and lots of personal expense. It is what makes their work their own. Asking an artist exactly how he/she created his/her art is much like walking up to a magician after the show and asking him to expose his illusions.

There are a lot of great art material/instructional providers for sculptors on the net. My personal favorite is www.smooth-on.com. They sell sculpting materials and instructional DVDs for nearly all of their products. These materials can then be tweaked and manipulated by the artist to achieve his/her own personal best.

Do you have any words of advice for the aspiring artist?

• Always copyright your work www.copyright.gov.
• Whether working for/with a company, agent, associate or friend always get all agreements in writing.
• Try to get as much exposure as you can to new materials and techniques through your school, workplace, the net, books, and DVDs.
• Pick a duck. Rather than spreading yourself too thin, choose an area of focus and explore that avenue.

How can I tell which of your sculptures are available for sale?
