I began to really gain interest in sculpting about four years ago. In the beginning, I used small packs of oven bake clay, then changed to air dry clay, and now I use a higher quality oven bake clay. After the clay is hardened, I attach wire to it, use cotton batting to form the body, and finally glue fur on it to make it come to life. These projects can take two days using air dry clay and one day if you use the oven bake clay. The finished product tends to mostly be creatures of some kind with an assortment of different kinds of fur. While the process of making any sculpture can be pretty frustrating, it ends up to be pretty rewarding as well.
