Great art. Can I give a request?

Your sculpture of Florence is truly amazing! I have only really ever done 2d art before and I am wanting to expand to clay now. I just have a few questions; What type of clay did you use for this particular sculpture and how do you insure that the clay does not dry during periods of time or breaks from working?

Thanks! I'm actually using an oil based clay which doesn't dry out. This means the sculpture forever stays soft, and to make it more permanent, I have to make a mold (I'm in the mold-making process right now) so that I can cast it in plaster or in my case, in bronze.

Another option is water based clay. As long as you keep watering it, (kind of like a plant I guess! haha!) it won' dry out. I've had a water-based clay sculpture I've kept moist for about months now by spraying it down once a week.
