How to Wrap a Foam Ball with CP Extensions

Wrapped ball with double extensions
Many air-dry clay projects call for Styrofoam shapes as armatures for figure modeling. We've featured a few different videos (see Labels "Styrofoam") showing the proper way to wrap a Styrofoam ball with cold porcelain (without getting cracks or trapped air).     In the following video, Marisol Romero shows us how to wrap a ball that includes extra cold
porcelain at each end....making an oval shape from the round ball. This technique can be used to model a lemon, the body of a duck or a goose or other critters!

Video narration is in Spanish, but even if you don't understand the language you should be able to follow along. Marisol clearly and carefully shows each step.

We've featured a few other videos from Marisol showing the proper way to wrap Styrofoam shapes with cold porcelain (without getting cracks or trapped air)...see Labels "Styrofoam" to view those videos.   Her videos are very educational for those just getting started with cold porcelain.   She also offers classes on her website (about $20 each course).

Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
