    I'm going to try sculpting

    I am going to make a sculpture, something bike themed, and I've already drawn it out.
    More directly would be bikeFORUMS themed. My dad is a trained sculptor, so he could probably help me out. I just wanted to inform you guys.

    Post pics of your MTBs and BMX bikes

    Take a piece of granite and chip away anything that doesn't look like a bike.

    If ignorance is bliss, shouldn't you be happy?

    Use marble.
    Granite is much to hard, you would dull any steel very quickly.
    I would know, I sell granite for a living

    My bad -- it should have been marble, but I took it for granite.

    is stone really the ideal medium to work with in your first attempt at sculpting? what about plasticine or wood?

    sculpting is a fun deal. once you finally start getting the results you want it's actually a little addicting.
    here's a mold i carved/sculpted a while back to make rc car bodies.

    i used two 2x4's and some body filler

    I vote for wood. Nothing like a band saw and a file to prove your artistic salt.

    Well, a really nice band saw and an artillery of files, sanding discs and drums, microfiber papers, tung oil, and a heap of patience. Then make it into a lamp. That'll show it.

    Geesh, I had wood shop in about 1970, I think making a pipe was one of the assignments. (although I don't remember)

    Three vampires walk into a bar and the bartender takes their drink orders: two bloods and a plasma.

    "Great," the bartender says, "that's two bloods and a blood lite!"

    Ba-dum tsh!
