I love all of your sculptures. So fantastical and detailed. Such whimsy attached to them. Love the cheekiness of this guy, so much personality!

I've only ever used air-dry clays, so I'm mildly confused about oil clays. Do you keep pieces like this, or do you make moulds out of all of your pieces? Do they keep well? I ask because I prefer my sculptures to be permanent, but I've read that oil based clays are malleable even after finishing. I understand you can't fire them, but do they air dry over time?

Thank you :) Re the oil and wax based clays, sometimes I make molds of them, and sometimes they just sit there gathering dust. They tend to dry out a little (Chavant moreso than Monster clay), but you can still go back and work on them years later, sometimes decades later. All that happens is they just get a little more brittle, but that's more the Chavant NSP line more than the Chavant Le Beau Touche series or the Monster Clays.

How fascinating! Thank you for the informative reply, it's greatly appreciated. How long have you been sculpting for? It's so impressive to me the way you can put your ideas into such intricate 3d structures.

I've been sculpting since I was young, but professionally for about 20 years or so.
