Be warned. This article isn’t about animation; it’s Plasticine’s time to shine. For many, Plasticine probably makes you think of school and the lingering rubbery smell it left on your fingers or when you had a crack at making Aardman-style characters. You most likely won’t associate it with art. Below are seven artists working with Plasticine whose work is inspirational and worth a follow.
