Rolling Modeling Stand

Slow cookers and electric skillets for heating clay

This is an open class so any materials are fine, but here are some recommendations:

For sketch models, harder self-supporting materials are recommended such as microcrystalline wax, Roma Plastilina #2 or #3. It’s best to avoid armatures of dissimilar material for these days. Bring enough material for 1/6th scale figures. For longer poses we recommend working at 1/4 scale. If you’re using a firm armature and want a softer working material we recommend Roma Plastilina #1 with an aluminum armature or a wax or modeling compound like Cx5 with a bespoke armature created on the day from the same materials.

Sales are non-refundable but in some cases we can switch a student’s enrollment in a class that has not yet started to another class of equal or lesser value. Art Mentors reserves the right to cancel, limit enrollment, substitute instructors or models, reschedule, or modify a class without notice to enrolled students. If a class is canceled, enrolled students will be given a refund. If an instructor is unable to finish a class term, a refund will be given to students at a pro-rated amount.
