This small piece is made of air-dry clay.
I made this some time ago using acrylic and a flat canvas board.
I found some old “critter clay” and thought I would see what it can do. The following is the clay applied direct to a ~10″x10″ canvas. The material seems pretty cool so far as it takes detail well and air dries, so no need for ovens and the like.
Apparently it also takes paint, not sure if I’ll try that on this piece but if so will post the next version. Either way it was a fun exercise.
