Squadron Plaque

For some time now I have been thinking of designing and making a Squadron plaque, so have got some air drying clay to model a maple leaf for my 5 Squadron plaque which will be made from solid oak wood. Now to get the design drawn.

First attempt using DAS clay, easy enough to work with and at the minute drying out, progress.

I found the clay easy to work with, a finger moistened with water helps to take off any sharp edges. Drying took a few days and I found it is best to turn the object over each day, as it tend to warp from the flat whilst drying, luckily I made a couple more and learned from the first one.

Project on hold for the minute as am busy building an Airfix F6 Lightning, but will return to the project when the Lightning is finished.
