Friday Tip


This week's Friday Tip comes courtesy of Tracy Eilers, who got sick of getting stabbed and scratched by her armature wires. I just always took the beatings as part and parcel of sculpting, but no more! To keep those pesky wire ends harmless, simply curl the ends of your extra wire into a loop. Now they'll behave, and you can nip off the end when you're sure of your measurements and can hide the wires completely in clay.

Oh definitely! Who knows when as I'm such a terribly slow sculptor, but one of these days. :-)
