Hip Hip Hooray! Today our friends at Blick Art Materials are giving away a plethora of sculpture materials valued at over $100.00! It’s the perfect way to try out some fun new materials. Read on to see what’s in this fun set. Click on the name of each product for more information.
This thick card stock is great for paper sculputure. See a project idea here.
Architects use this material for 3D renderings. You can cut it with scissors and wet it to form it around cylindrical shapes. When it’s dry, it retains it’s shape. Because it’s a bit touchy, this material is better suited for older students. See a project idea here.
Although this material is great for basket making, you can use it for so much more. Soak, bend or bind it into many different shapes using staples, glue or twine. Or, use your imagination to come up with something totally unique! See a project idea here.
This versatile sculpting medium can be used with a variety of materials and in a variety of ways. Dip or coat strips of fabric, felt, paper towels or other soft material before wrapping around wire armatures, draping over mask forms or even covering cardboard supports. Draping over a bowl gives you another cool option.

Mixing two parts Carve & Cast with one part water makes an instant maché medium that adheres to almost any armature material including wire, newspaper and balloons.
You can carve this soft material with wood, plastic or wire clay tools. It works best when sealed with paint or a clear acrylic medium.
This is a clear, rigid film that can be cut with scissors, then formed in hot water or draped over a bowl and heated in a 250°F oven . When cool, it retains its shape and can be painted with acrylic paint or designed with permanent markers. Blick recommend this for making Chihuly-style sculptures.

This wire is soft and easy to work with, yet sturdy enough for making figure sculptures and armatures.
