Ask Your Personal Angel for Help
I love to Sculpt with water-based clay. I love the relationship that I build with the clay and the subject as the clay dries and changes in texture and plasticity. I love that there’s a time-factor to finishing the work as it is formed and dries. The clay feels alive and working it is all about developing relationship.
I’ve never tried to add color when finishing figures before, but this one kept calling for it. When I was firing this piece and painting it, I was heavily into studying about angels in God’s Kingdom and army. I have looked at angels before, but this seems to be a renaissance of my ability to see and communicate with them in my life. It’s exciting.
And, the fun part is that as I was sculpting my next angel, I asked for help and was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. I’ll post him later.
If you would like to know more about angels, look at Blake Healy’s books, The Veil and Profound Good.
By God’s Grace.
