Hi Alex,
With the plastilina are there different degrees of hardness? I have been looking to obtain it within Australia and they mention different numbers for hardness. If Sargent Art ( the one you used ) only has the one firmness I can order it in from the U.S.
Thanks Eric

Sargent Art is little on the softer side. But other brands You can get in different degrees of hardness.

Hi Alex,
I have finally gathered all the plastalina and are almost ready to play with clay. I have a couple of questions for you.
The dimensions of the half sphere you used?
The diameter of the armature wire.
Did you use foam in both the upper and lower parts of the mouth? If so what were the approximate dimensions?
I intend to start the clay model whilst I am finishing the last 2 flowers on the Hashemi project.

Half Sphere is 20cm (7 7/8″)
And Yes I used “floral” foam in the lower and upper part of a mouth.
