Sculpting with gray airdrying clay : first attempt

sculpting with polymer clay is impossible for the moment and so i tried out an airdrying clay just to see what comes out ... well, Ok , this fairy is not perfect at all , but the clay i used allows me to sculpt small figures and that already made my day just knwong that sculpting with darwi ( also an airdrying clay ) is just IMPOSSIBLE !!! So let me show you how this airdrying clay fairy looks like ; Not bad for a first attempt, huh !!
