An introduction to materials, tools & techniques

Learn everything about using Cx5 at different temperatures, how to begin a figure sculpture or create a model from machined Cx5 parts, and many ways to achieve different textures and finishes. Perfect for beginning or experienced sculptors new to Cx5, and those sculpting for the first time. Lessons focus on techniques specific to Cx5 and also explain the fundamentals of professional sculpting. Although this video is specific to Cx5, the techniques are all applicable to Cx5s with the following caveats; the modeling techniques are actually easier in Cx5s because of its longer working time, while the machining techniques are easier in Cx5 because it is harder at room temperature.
