Sculpture Study: Clay and Sand Experiment

I made a small study to test out a combination of plastilene and sand as a means of facilitating surface texture in these sculptures. To my surprise, the plastilene held up well when mixed with the sand, and provided the crumbly and gritty surface I was looking for. The next step will be to troubleshoot how this material will hold up on a larger scale sculpture.

I’ve been using sandpaper to create a textured surface in the drawings, so it seems to make perfect sense that sand would make an appearance in the texture of these sculptures.
