Default Sculpey Sculptures!

Well, I bought 2 pounds of this stuff a LONG time ago because I was gonna do this huge 8 inch tall sculpture. I couldn't be bothered to finish it, because I didn't plan well enough and it was way ambitious for a first project. So, I have a giant pile of Sculpey sitting around. I made one the tiki first, just for fun. The octopus is a random gift for the lady. Both are no more than 2 inches tall. Painted with acryllics.

Hahaha, those are soooo cool! So you just used sculpey and painted it? I never thought of doing that! I've only used sculpey for making beads though. So then I don't have to sit around mixing and buying all sorts of colours... Wicked.

Maybe I'll do some WIP shots next time. The wood grain is just scratched in after it was baked. You can sand it and carver pretty easily after its baked, it doesn't chip or crack really.

I use Super Sculpey, to be technical. I know they have regular low quality Sculpey for kids and stuff. It awesome stuff if your ever interested in sculpting, like playing with human flesh >_>

Hmm, you might have just inspired me to go play with my sculpey clay that has been sitting around for years.

I am a bigger fan of Crayola Magic Foam, but you only have 24 hours to work with it because it air dries. You also have to make a skeleton to support the structure of your creation because it is foam. Alright, I better stop because I am sounding like a marketer for Crayola.

I would definitely like to see you sculp a hero or villian, something with more detail and difficult form. Good job on the painting of the octopus.

Yeh man those are so sweet. The octopus is like something from wind waker ;d
We'll be working with this stuff next year in my course, but I want to get my hands on some super sculpey for my personal use >_>

What brand of paint did you use? I've tried painting super sculpey before, and I had to do a ton of coats...

Thanks guys. I just use cheap generic brand acryllics, and yes it does take a million coats to actually cover it. For the octopus I took my time and started with a white coat. then I sponged on the teal in light coats. It's a pain in the ass, I need to find a way to prime it or something so it doesn't take forever.

maybe several coats of a clear coat or something, whether matte medium of something else. then when it dries, paint on that and i wont be absorbed. I havent tried what im sayin, so its taken many coats for me too lulz.

These are awesome. I hear most people use airbrushes and what not for painting their sculptures though, have you tried that?

Oh is there a big difference between regular sculpey and super sculpey. I just tried using regular sculpey yesterday and it seems to be pretty hard to mold into something soft. It also breaks quite a bit making it harder to cover the holes that arise when pushing the clay around. Is super sculpey softer?

Super sculpey is like high quality stuff, I know pro people use it. Basically you work it aorund and it gets softer, but still very firm. The thing is that super sculpey is REALLY smooth and consistent. Like I said, the color on smoothness remind me best of human skin

I think that the key with working with any type of sculpey is to make sure it's properly warmed up first by rolling it in your hands until it is softer to work with. Cause otherwise it can be quite crumbly and awkward, especially if it's old. Not that I'm any sort of expert on sculpey, this is the only figure I've made from it (well, I made two of him, if that counts) :P
