Two Simple Ways to Get Started on Sculpting a Bust

If you think sculpting a bust in clay seems like a difficult endeavor, you’ll feel differently after watching today’s video clip. In this clip, an excerpt from Figure Sculpting in Clay, Melisa Cadell explains two incredibly simple ways to rough out a torso. One starts out with a basic pottery form that everybody is familiar with: a cylinder. The other harkens back to playing with paper dolls! When you approach sculpture in such simple ways, suddenly sculpting the figure doesn’t seem so intimidating! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
