Clay Sculpture

Ashtray ? Old Man



Materials Needed:


Sculpture Clay (available at art & craft shops)
Sculpture tool
Butter knife
Black paint spray can (either in matt or gloss)
Light duty sand paper.



First decide on what you are going to make from the clay.   Assemble the clay roughly like the shape you want to create.  Use the butter knife to smoothen the edges.  When done,  use the sculpting tool to sculpt and give the finishing touches.   Sprinkle water on the model that you have made and smoothen all edges.  Dry the sculpture for 24 hours or till completely dry. Take a small sand paper and rub all over the sculpture. Hold the spray can at arms length and spray the sculpture.



I have made a nude reclining old man and made a small hollow in the lap to collect cigarette ash?. Ouch!!!!!.  This is surely an ashtray with a difference 🙂



Hope you like it as much as all my friends did.
