When making a sculpture the texture (or lack there of) can be vital to the finished outcome of the piece. Sometimes you want something perfectly smooth or with a faint texture. Other times you want something with a heavy texture to represent cloth or wood or any number of things. There are a lot of different ways to go about this depending on your need and the type of piece you’re doing.
