Green Lizard

Close up of lizard head.

Materials: CelluClay, acrylic paint.

I sculpted the basic shape for this on a sheet of aluminum foil. It’s small enough to not need any internal supports, so it’s pure CelluClay. To make it even and symmetrical I repeated several cycles of grinding, sanding, and then applying more CelluClay.

After that I moved onto painting, which went smoothly. I didn’t base the coloration on any real lizard I know of, but chose colors and patterns that I thought looked interesting together.
