Creature Sculpt Preview - Final product will vary slightly from what is seen here.
This 200 page full color book discusses everything you need to know about sculpting your own creatures in Sculpey and Monster Clay.
I have been sculpting for over a decade and I taught fine art for six years. I've put my sculpting knowledge together with my curriculum building experience to bring you this information packed book that is over a year in the making. I just know you will love it!
Creature Sculpt is great for beginning sculptors and novices alike. The methods explained require some light tool use (hammer and nails, wire clippers) as well as the use of an oven. I wouldn't suggest this book for children under 10. Adult supervision is recommended for children 10 and up.
