Figurine by ladymeow Figurine by ladymeow
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.

He`s beautiful! I`m thinkng about making a little forest sprite of my own (if you don`t mind, of course!). Any advice?

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

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^

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.
