From accelerators (chemicals that speed up the hardening process) to workmate (a portable workbench popular in many studios), this key reference contains all a working sculptor needs to know! Not only does it include details on techniques, but if offers guidance on a wide selections of materials, from bronze and concrete to polystyrene and glass. Hints on adapting tools and producing unusual finishes all give sculptors greater versatility in their craft. And the recipes-including one for mixing aggregates-plus facts about setting, hardening, and curing times will prove invaluable. Numerous photos show sculptors at work, and showcase famous sculptures, and there are diagrams of tools. It's the definitive guide to studio practice.
