Wax & Wood Clay Sculptures

The initial project i am working on can be a sculpture no greater than 5 inches. Easier said than done. After working through several initial concepts i finally created a frog out of woodclay to my satisfaction. I then molded a second frog out of wax. It seemed a lot easier to create the wax toad after i had worked with the prototype. Initially i wanted it to be smooth - but i have now texturized the wax frog so it looks quite cool. Better pictures to follow soon.

This week I will be setting up pour cups and attaching them to the frogs. Then they will be immersed in a fine sand like substance to build up an exterior casing.
