Clay Model Making (Clay Modeling)
Modeling is one most important basic process that is to be followed before making sculpture. Clay forms the primary base based on which sculpture or statue need to be formed. The most common medium for preparing the basic form of the statue is clay or wax. The tools that are used to give the proper shape and dimension are sculptor’s hands, some main modeling tools. Ones the clay model is formed desired metal are used to give the final form. Clay modeling is the ancient technique and is in use since the Egyptian pre-historic era when clay figurines were available in the Middle East and Egypt.
Clay is the most desired medium for carving as corrections can be easily done. Moreover, clay is not a permanent medium like wood or stone so can be used to form the inner shell of the actual metal sculpture. Fished work of clay are used only for religious worship that for a limited span of time.
The most easily recognized clay model is the three-dimensional art pieces using Plastilina- oil-based clay, Ceramic/pottery clay, self-hardening (non-firing) clay, wax or other polymer-based material.
Details about choosing the right clay for sculpture making:
The most important property of clay is that it is extremely versatile and is easy to work with and this makes it easy for model making both for beginners and experts. In addition to the material you choose based on texture, fee, and hardness of the material you can manipulate it to give the desired design with the help of clay modeling tools. There are various forms of sculpture tools available based on shapes, styles, and sizes you want to create to give a specific effect.
The clay that you choose can be water-based, wax or Plastilina. The medium you choose must be based on how you want to have the end product. If you are planning to have mold then you need to have oil-based or wax-based material such as Plastilina. If you want to have only the clay model as finished product then you can you air-dry clay. If you want to fire your clay model in a kiln then water-based clay or ceramic clay can be best. Every clay pattern has its own unique components. Plastilina is oil and wax based clay. Self-hardening clay has a clay body that is ceramic with natural addictives. Pottery clay is clay with water added to it.
The clay model acts as internal support for the armature and helps them in the easy sculpting process. At times the outer material of the sculpture needs support in that clay model is extremely helpful. An armature provides the internal foundation which is extremely essential to build your sculpture. The armature is the skeletal system which is frame worked to keep it in an upright position. Armature also prevents the clay from collapsing. For bulky figures armature provides proper support to the clay model. To create an ideal clay model lot of sculpting tools are being used. Thumbs and fingers of the artist are the basic tools. Expect this; to give the ideal geometric shapes and fine cuts these tools are being used. For cutting, scraping, smoothing, shaping and detailing the clay model hardwood modeling tools and wire end modeling tools can be used. In case you are using soft and moist ceramic clay in that case hardwood tool can be enough, but if you are working on the wax model, Plastilina or hard clay in that case wire end tools are required for detailing. The size of the tools you choose for sculpting varies depending on the size of the sculpture you make.
