    1. Hi David (clayguy1), Your work is great. Your technique is very painstaking though but the result is great. I do not know what the clay is you are using. We do not have much selection here. Yes I work in Bronze as well as I trained as a Bronze Founder in my teens, so I was lucky enough to learn the whole process and the art of Silicone mould making. I also cast in Cultured Marble from a throw away plaster mould for one off portraits. Cheers, Michael

    3. @themaskboy1234 Thanks for your comments, I really do appreciate them. I have done a few but I specialise more in the full portrait sculpture. I hope you are having a great success with your work. Regards, Michael

    4. Yes, if you are firing your sculpture, you will have to take it off the stand and hollow it out.To separate a sculpture, use a length of thin wire and slice cleanly through the clay. As I am not a ceramic sculptor but a bronze sculptor I am sorry I am unable to give you further advice for firing your pieces.
