Hello, and welcome to the Hunters Lair! I will say, that first off I think it's kinda funny how you make it sound like that being from the UK is some kinda hinderance. However there are several artists here from the UK who are just marvelous!!! Mav for instance.

Anyways, yes, please keep your topic to one post. The only thing having more than one post on here will accomplish is to annoy other members.

There are many different types of clay to choose from, depending on your budget. Waterbased, or oilbased. Either one is just personal preference I think. I use oil-based myself because I don't have a lot of time to work on any specific piece. Oil based never dries out. Waterbased is more for those who are all about results right quick. Although it can dry out and crack, you have to keep it moist. From what I hear it's easy to work though.

Awwww Rob I'm welling up here man I wasn't bashing just trying to keep things a bit tidier, and wasn't too sure if he'd missed the answers in his last thread. Being in the UK I know we don't have all the wonderful goodies that are available over the pond. But if you look carefully, you can find things that are pretty close. Check out Monster Makers as Mel pointed out in you previous post the manual is invaluable and quite cheap really if you consider what's inside the PDF. As ROb points out the clays will be your main choice, if you're a novice go with waterbased clay, it's quick, easy to block out your shapes and if you keep it damp you can keep a sculpt going for quite a while. Adding glycerine to your water helps reduce the how swiftly the clay dries out.

Looking forward to seeing your progress. Be sure to take your time. I see too many people in some sort of race to finish a sculpt and the end result looks half assed.
