I wanted to start working in 3D and decided clay would be an ideal medium to get things started. I choose a simple computer mouse as my subject.
I then rolled out a ball of clay thinly and spread it atop the wires. I belive I made it a little to thin in places and this resulted in some tearing that I had to fix. I folded over the corners and applied pressure to affix it to the metal.
Overall I think this experiment was somewhat successful, I achieved a recognisable form using only plastercine and wire. I wasted little material thanks to the frame concept, which I will continue to use in the future.
The only frustrating thing was being unable to get clean edges and folds due to the nature of the medium used, my shapes are always going to be irregular and slightly messy.
