Making armatures and getting my stuff seems the hardes thing.

Everytime i try to make something it ends up breaking, falling off the armature etc..

I read in a book about rodins way of sculpting. He would build a cone of clay, then let it harden for about a day or two. Has anyone done this? This sounds cool. Because the only way i can get my stuff permanent is by firing, the other ways are too expensive and i have no clue how to do them.

How well would it work for a life size bust that carries substantial weight?
