what a great collection of textures, Jon!! I love the silver of his helmet & spear point, the scars on his shield, & the ripped out nail on same. He's obviously seen some battles. He must be very brave.
These are really great!What material do you use when you sculpt these?
I use polymer clay - specifically colored Premo for these sculpts. There's an armature inside, supporting the clay.
Oh ya? Well they look awesome!I'm a beginner sculptor testing the waters of multiple materials. So far earth ware and another modeling clay. I'll have to try that stuff. Any suggestions?Thanks!
it all depends on what you want to do of course. If you want to create finished work, polymer clay can be nice because you won't need to make a cast you just cure the clay. If you use modeling clay, you'll need to do a mold and cast your piece so that it can be permanent. For modeling clay, your standard clays are quite soft and don't hold much detail - I'd recommend using a clay that can be soft when warm but hardens as it cools so you can refine your detail. Try chavant CM-50 or Casteline, which is a wax\clay hybrid that is quite nice. The cm50 is sulfur based, so beware the smell.
I'll have to look into those, thanks again :)
Just came across your blog. Fantastic little scupltures!
