Having a chance to try out new (to me) media is opening up possibilities. I have had a sculpted version of the water sprite character in my head for a while. I quite like the needle felted version, but the face didn't come out quite the way I imagined and I am not keen on the colour. The medium is too matte for a water creature.
With that in mind I moved onto Das, air dry clay. Cheap, not too difficult to sculpt, as a result it seemed the ideal medium for the more slick finish this character needs. Again the face has changed, but I rather like the alterations.
