It's much lighter than ordinary clay and you can get it much thinner than regular clay. OH and something else neat about it is you can attach wet pieces of it to dry clay and the pieces don't break off like with conventional clay. It's really neat stuff.

Well Im going to have to try it out then lol :D I always hated that you had a short time frame to add clay onto a piece before it was too late... It sonds like fun!! I think I actually have a packet lying around the house somewhere...

Awesome :) You can even use conventional clay and mix paper into it. There are recipes in books and I'm sure the internet would have some. It is a truly unique form of clay.

I don't want to say beautiful, but another word for it.. hmm.. It's unique and original. I really like it apart from the other Splice entries!

Awesome! I absolutely adore those sucker feet. They're such a pain in the butt to draw, I can just imagine how much work went into sculpting all of the danged things!

LOTS...but I knew they would make the sculpture so much cooler if I did them all individually

Which is a shame, considering it's the best overall design I've seen so far.

Oh...:( Oops. Guess I got so excited I skipped over that part. I just thought the splicing of two species was what I needed. Oh well...nothing ventured nothing gained

Well...apparently I was supposed to make this just for the Splice contest...I made this almost 2 years ago and thought it qualified as a "splicing of two species"...I wasn't aware it had to be made just for this contest.

Considering it looks like its at some person's art display im willing to bet he didnt make it.

I thought that too, but the ceramic section of his dA gallery supports the notion that he is the original artist.

Oh I can assure you I am the original artist. This was when I was displaying her at the Summer BFA show. She's about waist high when she's sitting on the floor and weighs about 75 lbs so this was the most ideal time to photograph her.
