Making my own...?!
« on: 27 July, 2015, 12:33:51 am »
Can you see what it is yet?

Anyone who has already seen some of the process on FB, don't spoil it! I want to see if anyone can guess what my next Super Sculpey project is.

 "I am looking for friendship!

I must not Fear. Fear is the mind-killer
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration
I will face my Fear
I will permit it to pass over me and through me
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path
Where the Fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Aha!  I think you're onto me!  ;)

I have a couple more progress pics which I'll post up later.

Can't wait to see them! ;)

Hope a guide will follow later, because I must try this! Love this character! :D

Filling the body out with foil, as I need to save on Super Sculpey. Leaving the feet alone - they need to be solid Sculpey so it has a lower centre of gravity, and better freestanding balance.

I have covered the foil with a thin layer of Sculpey, and started to work on the general shape and build.

Unfortunately it has to pause here for the next fortnight - I ran out of Sculpey, and I'm not going to be around until 9th Aug!!

Do you bake this once you've finished the sculpt?

I will be doing that, yeah.  I don't know if you saw my Gronk, but I'll largely be following the same process as here:

My super sculpey is turning up on Thursday so maybe I'll have more progress shots by the weekend.

Careful with that oven temperature. He's heat-sensitive.

Hahahaha!!  :lol:

He's out of the oven and cooling nicely. The odd crack here and there, but a lick of paint will sort that.





Here's a slightly indulgent selfie to give a sense of scale.
