Materials and Tools

Please read the description of any piece to see what materials I used for its construction.

My maquettes are constructed using Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm.  Some of my maquettes as well as my larger sculptures are made using Aves Apoxie Sculpt and/or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam.    I also work with Monster Clay and create molds/casts from these sculpts.

My armatures consist of household aluminum foil, as well as aluminum armature wire.  I paint with Delta Ceramcoat craft acrylic paints, using both an airbrush (for larger pieces) and hand brushes.

I buy my wood bases at Jo-Ann, Michael's, and AC Moore.  They are available at most local craft stores in the US.  I am not familiar with where you can purchase them internationally, but factory direct craft sells wood bases and ships internationally.

For Supply Purchase, Try....

Concerning Sales

If a piece is for sale in my gallery, it will state so in the description.  If it does not mention being for sale, it was either a custom piece created for someone else or it has already been sold (or I am just not selling it!)  Please do not ask me to remake any pieces in my gallery; not only is this boring for me to do, it defeats much of the purpose of owning an original.  I do not mind sculpting the same character again, but it needs to be in a fresh light.

Check out the for sale section in my gallery to see a selection of works currently available for purchase.

A Note About Questions

I will no longer be responding to material related questions that can be answered with a simple Google search or that I have answered on this page.  I am not doing this to be mean.  I get a LOT of questions that I simply do not have the time to respond to.

If you have a questions about technique, PLEASE check my tutorials in my gallery to see that it isn't answered there first.  I put a lot of time and effort into those and they explain a majority of what I do.  

Group Requests

While I appreciate the motion,  I do not accept requests to unthemed groups or groups with themes that are irrelevant to the particular sculpture.  Please don't take it personally if I decline your group invitation.  I welcome themed group invitations, regardless of quality control.


Yes, I have comments turned off.  It is for a number of reasons, but mainly because I don't have the time to manage them.  If you really want to comment on a specific piece, feel free to send me a note or comment on the gallery page.


All sculpture photos are taken by my Husband, Joe Coleman :iconphantom42:

Hi, I was wonder what I should do when sanding my sculptures. When I was sanding I noticed that there were some fine particles that can fly in to the air, when that happened I remembered my ceramics teacher saying something about silica and how it can stay in the air for a few weeks. On the back of creature sculpt it says that polymer clay is PVC based, i google searched it and people say that it was a very toxic plastic.
I don't if I should be worried, if people on google were exaggerating too much or what i should do.

The dragons you sculpt are magnificent!  I really liked the Spring Dragon and can't wait to see how the Forest Emperor Dragon turns out in the end!
