Re: Small Sculpting How-to


Yea, my pc is feakin out. It won't read my dig pics off of my floppy.

 :huh

Mabye you guys could post some how-to pics. Just start with simple stuff. I don't know what... ok here's one.

There is a guy on one of the threads that wants "Spawn" skulls. I looked at them and said "ok there's something I can try and start with".. umm no... can't I am tooo stoopid :grumble

I couldn't even make a simple shape like that.

It seems that if I start with a lifecast I have no problem doing a sculpt like a mask. It is when I don't have that form to start with.

Mabye someone could do a pred bio. It is an easy shape but again I can't do it at all. I just don't know how to start!! :help

Re: Small Sculpting How-to


You can send me the pics if you want. maddrummer5@comcst.net
Again,the type of clay you're using is very important. What are you using?

Here's the thread for my Begins sculpt. He's roughly 1:8 scale,which is about 9 inches high if he was standing up straight.

The first pic was done in a day just to get the shape and form and proper proportions. Check the other pages for progression shots. He's even more refined now,but I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to work on him in a week or so or take pics.
This is the best I have to offer at the moment.

Re: Small Sculpting How-to


There are different kinds of
Sculpey. It's very important that you use Super Sculpey. When you're finished sculpting,you'll want to bake it so you can sand and do final shaping and detailing. Plus,you can bake it over and over if you're careful....meaning sculpting the basic figure,then bake it,then add some more detail,such as armor,then bake again,etc.,etc. Sculpt as much as you can in a single shot,but don't worry about getting everything.

Sculpey's I,II,III are soft and very difficult to get any precise detail. Super Sculpey is more stiff,but can be softened by kneeding it in your hands.
FIMO is also a very good clay. It's very similar to Super Sculpey and is baked when complete.

My best suggestion is,if you're not using Super Sculpey,scrap what you're doing and start again. If you are,then you'll just have to keep at it. :)

OK,I can't exactally tell by the pic,but that looks like Sculpey III to me. If it is,I can say with confidence that you won't get the detail you want and you'll just keep getting frustated. If it isn't,my bad.
Super Sculpey and Sculpey III are completely different.
Here's what to do: 1)Go to DC and have fun. :)
2)When you get back,scrap this whole project and start fresh.
Get a pound of Super Sculpey(green and white box),some strong wire and also some very thin wire.
When you have this,let me know and I'll walk you through the first step....getting your armature prepared.
You'll want to get the basic armature together,then wrap it with thin wire so the clay has something to grab onto,otherwise,it will just slide up and down the thicker wire.
When you're ready,I'll show you what I mean.
