: Need clay source around Detroit, MI

03-15-2015, 01:25 PM
I need a clay source around Detroit, MI. I have not sculpted since I was a child and want to get into it seriously. I found the company "The Compleat Sculptor" and their prices are acceptable, but shipping costs make the prices unpalatable. This is probably an easy question for an experience Detroit area sculptor, as I suspect the auto industry here would cause a lot of clay to be in the area, but I have no idea where to start looking.

I am looking for a reasonably priced source of from 100-200 pound of (most likely) oil based clay. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. I hope someone here will be able to help you. I will tell you honestly we have not had much activity in the sculpting category, so there may be no one here that knows. Sure hope I'm wrong.

It is doubly bad because I'm in metro Detroit and contrary to what is said in the media there is not much activity here either, so finding someone on the forum, then having them be from this area should be quite a challenge.

Have you looked on Dick Blicks? I don't know how much clay you need but they have a wide variety.
