If you’ve ever had problems with appendages cracking off of handbuilt sculptures, today’s video might just help you solve that problem. In it, Patz Fowle explains the process she developed to avoid these unfortunate occurrences. Patz has been using this process to make her whimsical, anthropomorphic, clay animal sculptures for years. Since it is back to school time, I thought it was a great time to share this project for all the teachers (and students) out there. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
