rock dragon head in clay by Reptangle rock dragon head in clay by Reptangle
another pic of the "Rock Dragon " in clay. The rock is real. I borrowed it from a neighbor and promised to return it when I was done.
This original sculpture was made of "castaline" a really hard material that is sort-of a cross between Roma plastaline and wax. It is nice for detail work, but murder to form up.
First painted gypsum casting of this piece: reptangle.deviantart.com/art/R…

The sculpture was made on a real rock and then the whole thing was cast together as one piece in gypsum.

It is a new stuff I tried called "castaline". It is a cross between hard plastiline and hard wax. You sculpt it by melting it in a pot and then mush it into shape, or pour it into a mold to start with. It becomes very hard at room temp so it can be finely detailed. It is very difficult and awful to sculpt with by hand though, it's like sculpting with wet cat food.
It comes in different hardness and this was the hardest kind, so that may of been why it was so difficult.
