    I'm a big fan of WED clay, super sculpty and Chavant... WED being my favorite, it's messy and requires a good amount of space as it is water based and muddy.

    Depends on the type of sculpture your doing, not strictly, but busts are good in WED, while super sculpty is greart for maquettes as is Chavant... and Chavant is best for hard surfaces like car designs etc.

    I would start off using super sculpey. It has the advantage of being able to be baked easily and you wont have to go through the process of moulding and casting. It can be found at any michaels, but as with all their inventory, they will gouge you on the prices. They charge about $21-23 canadian but you can find it cheaper if you look elsewhere online

    The smellybug tutorials at the top of this section of the forum are an invalube source and should explain most of what you need to know.
