Dear ladies and gentlemen.

My mother is a sculptor and she is looking for contacts with other sculptors or interested in sculpture people around the world. She is waiting for your letters!

I deeply apologize to Andrey for accidentally using his subject line.

Here is a repost of my former message.

Hello everyone!

I am a sculptor faced with a problem.

I use clay for my (rather small) pieces and usually have no trouble with cooking. Alas, my latest production decided to burst in fragments, fortunately not so small as not to be susceptible to be fixed up with glue. Now once the piece is whole again the thing would be to use a finishing touch that could hide the many very apparent fissures. To that effect, a fellow sculptor of mine uses plastic wood to fill in the gaps and gives a final polish with coloured wax of the same tone. As good as the final result looks, I am looking for any other suggestion you might have, since final coating has always been a nightmare to me.

Thank you in advance for your input.

[Are you that other fellow's mother?]

[I can't think of any topcoating that would look very good. Why not fill the major gaps with clay and pull a mold from the glued-together piece? If it was a plaster mold you could remove the cracklines easily, since they would be raised lines on the mold surface. Then cast in clay slip or some other material.]

I have used 'Fix-all' (a patching compound found in hardware stores) on bisque-fired sculptures which had split apart during firing. After using epoxy to put the pieces back together, you can fill in the gaps with Fix-all, smooth or resculpt edges with fingertips, and, after it dries, sand the surfaces of the patched area smooth with the remainder of the piece. I have used spray paint on the finished piece and you have to look pretty hard to find the fissures. Shoe polish on the bisque ware is also a favorite. Good luck!

I am a Canadian Artist/Sculptor who makes life-sized realistic 'people sculptures' out of varied mediums. Some of my work may be seen in my online gallery : http://www.escape.ca/~sullivan/

Looking forward to making some contacts!
