Clay Haunted Castles

In this sculpture studio, little artists sculpted an 8-inch high 3-D castle. IMG_7704

Armatures were built onece plans were drawn.  Then from slabs of clay the armatures were wrapped and turrets, windows panes and brick details were added.

Stability and structure  were key factors in the design of our castles.

We painted our castles with metallic paint mixed with a touch of glow-in-the-dark paint to add that extra dazzle!IMG_7673

The main armature was pulled out once the castles had dried, allowing for a tea light to be placed inside to illuminate the castle windows.
