**What clay are you using?** When streaming, I most often use Apoxie Sculpt, a two part clay that cures rock hard. It comes in many colors but I usually use white/off-white. For my day to day sculpting, I use Monster Clay, a brown colored oil-based clay. I use this for figures that I plan to mold and cast or for concept pieces. **What do you use for your armatures?** Steel wire, aluminum wire, aluminum mesh, and brass tubing are the materials I most commonly use. Most of my armatures are reinforced with Apoxie Sculpt. **How long have you been sculpting?** 18+ years now. I did not attend art school but have learned from a number of awesome people over the years. **What is that creature I hear in the background of your streams?** Ivy, my hyacinth macaw and studio "helper".
