When you have many interns on a project, there are multiple things happening at the same time. After roaming and searching for just the right texture for the floor of this sculpted scene, I have found wood that will work. I prefer to have a wooden base rather than a sculpted base as the floor gets much use from moving things on and off. One of my interns comes in and makes a rolling base for the sculpture and the floor. James, another intern spray paints the base a brown color. I like to have everything the same color as the clay that I am using. It helps me to see the projects as a uniform piece and offers less visual distraction. I also think it helps the client to see the sculpture. James also fills in the cracks.
