As in any artistic field these skills do not appear over night, they are a process that has to be worked on and perfected on an individual basis over a long period of time. With confidence they can provide a lifetime of employment and gratification at the highest level bringing an artist impression to reality. Each sculptor has a different method or approach to creating a surface leaving no one method the be all or end all in modeling. The most important aspect is the end result so with that knowledge I'm offering you the following processes to help you on your way to a career in clay modeling or car design, enjoy and do not hesitate to contact me should you have a question relating to the process of clay modeling.

Good luck and model with pride.
