Here's my first foray into sculpting urban scatter terrain from DAS clay. Wins no prizes, and does look better in the flesh, so to speak, but once painted and grunged up will save my pounds for more important things.
Will keep practising and try other techniques, but the results are encouraging given that I'm using DAS clay and a cocktail stick and have expended a total of two hours to create 40+ single bin bags, 4 groups, a sofa and mattress.
The stacks above took maybe 5-6 minutes each. This was because I especially wanted to portray bags that had settled and were squashed by the weight of the bag/s on top. In addition, I wanted to make sure the top ones looked like they had settled naturally. Once I have a couple of stacks that I think look just right, I'll mould and cast them.
The 'sofa' was carved out of a block of a single block of DAS that had started to harden. In the future I'll make separate arms and then bring the whole thing together once dry.
Above all, the most important thing is that this has been fun!
