Lil guy I started working on a few weeks ago... finally finished painting him and adding hair. was fun. ^_^

Had my dad take the pictures for me... tried to do it myself but they came out really really bad. XD maybe I'll try to get some even better pictures some time later.

Thanks!
Of course I don't mind if you want to make your own... hmm... I'm not sure about general advice to give you though since there's so many different materials you could use and a lot of different ways to go about it. If you're using oven bake clay, like I do, then I'd recommend sculpting it over a wire skeleton and to bake multiple times. that was you can sculpt some parts of the body, bake to harden, and then sculpt more without having to worry about messing up the parts you already worked on... at least that's how I like to do it.

Do you have a wire frame inside the legs ? :O my small pieces always tend to break

ladymeow Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
Yes. Actually how I do them now is I double up the wire and twist it so that the clay has more to stick on. This one in particular is old though and I actually used aluminum foil instead of wire.
lol I wouldn't recommend using foil for anything more then filler though. :XD:

OAO ohhh so this is ... polymer/super sculpty?

Yea I used ceramic clay on mine ^^; and I usually work solid ... so no fillings.
that's why my pieces are really heavy XP

I hope you dont mind if I try something like this right? *A* this is so cool XD you inspire me to make small delicate things lol

Yes, I use sculpy or other brands of polymer clay. It's a lot different from working with ceramic clay. It doesn't feel as nice to touch but I think it's at least more convenient since you don't really have to worry about it drying while you work.

and of course I wouldn't mind if you start making these. have at it! They can be lots of fun to work on. :nod:

you have to bake them right? so don't you have to clean your oven? o.o I heard it was toxic or something... something w/ a certian chemical.

Thanks ^w^

ladymeow Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011
Yes it needs to be baked in a oven or toaster oven. Some people recommend using a toaster oven that is for crafts only because of the chemicals but most people don't worry that much about it. I don't worry that much about it. The stuff it marketed to be used in a home oven and is labeled non-toxic. :shrug:
It is a good idea to always wash you're hands after handling the raw clay and to only use tools that are not going to be used on food.

How much would you charge me for one...?

ladymeow Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
ah, well it depends on how big and detailed you'd want yours to be. The medium price they go for on ebay is $50 so that's the base price at the moment.

I will! Soon as I find some clay that isn't too pliable. I have some Sculpey, but its so... mushy and not hard. I'll have to pick up something else and some materials, but I definitely want to make one ^^

ladymeow Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
yeah, sculpey tends to be quite soft, and also brittle after it's baked. You can always firm it up a bit though by leaching out some of the plasticizers. Just roll it out thin and then put it in a paper towel under some books for a few nights. When you take it out there should be an oily stain on the paper towel and the clay is not quite so soft.

laadeedoll Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
I'll have to try that ^^ and that helps with the brittleness after its baked too?

I'm so looking forward to this. Now I get to scourge to see what I can find for accessories and hair etc.
thanks for the help!

ladymeow Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011
Ah, no, unfortunately sculpy tends to be a bit brittle no matter what. All leaching out the oils does is make it less gooey when you work with it. lol you should have lots of fun with it though!

You never know, a stomach can be all-seeing... mines definitely all-commanding. Hmmm... so he didn't eat it eh? Maybe his shadow stole it. *quickly obeys stomach*
