Is this a certain type of clay,,,i bought some regular modelling clay from an art said the choice of sculptors,artists and animators...and do they use some type of wire inside to move them??? sorry if these are simple sounding questions but just learning all this

animators use plasticine here in the uk we have newplast plasticine and that is what aardman use.

dont use modelling clay your models will be more like maquettes!

the main character has a armature covered in foam or different materials, depends on what the model is for and how its going to move etc

wudworks, i only use electrical wire and aliminium wire to make my armatures (skeletons under the plastercine) i think most of us on this site use newplast plastercine;) are you going to have a go at making a model?:)
