About This Class

This class is a great project for all levels, even people who never sculpted before.It is a great way to start sculpting, as corals are fairly easy to master.
You are also going to learn how to deal with colors and play around with composition as you go. I'm going to guide you through my own creative process, from finding the right reference pictures online or in books, deciding on colors, composition and how to sculpt a few different types of corals and sponges. The class is organized like follow :

1. Introduction

2.2. Sculpting : Negombata Magnifica (toxic finger-sponge)
