I have regular sculpy do I bake the wings seprate and then I know its stays temp wise around 275 and the body from what I have read is 15 mins but when do I bake the wings and do I bake it at less time?
when baking ur sculpy it can be a little tricky, id suggest back it as a complete sculpture so u can't see the edges. and try wrapping the whole sculpture in aluminium foil first that will evenly spread the heat inside the oven. and i would check on the sculpture every 10 mins incase the thinner pieces start turning to black. good luck!
Ok I appericate it I have scuply origanal and I have layered and I have done more layers on the main body part but for the wings I just only have a layer because its droping the wings Also is there a way I can prevent it from cracking I have a hard problem with that sadly but thanks for the advice
I'm intrigued by what you did here. My art teacher would never let me use metal (or anything but the clay itself) as an armature for sculptures, though it would have helped immensely if I could have. Granted, that was ceramic clay, not sculpey!
Earthy or ceramic Clay is completely different to Sculpey Wich is a Polymer clay. The difference is in how the clays are baked, sculpy goes rock hard in an ordinary oven and won't explode if it has air bubbles so using an wire armature wont effect the bakeing. But ceramic clay is to be put in an presuriesed kiln and a kiln heats up to a point that will melt metal. And if there was air bubbles the clay will explode. That's the difference between clay and polymer clays. Thanks for asking the question, and I hope this helps
Thank you for the nice tutorial. I'm sure I'll make good use of this on my next project. ^^
A couple of tips: bake in-between stages (for reference see [link]) this will allow thicker areas like the body and legs extra time to bake without burning the thinner, detailed areas. Also using Rustoleum spray on primer would help the paint stick better.
How did you? Omg what. This is just...way too amazing. I'm talking a maquette class where I have to do sculpey sculptures...and geez, it's a lot harder than it looks. And yet you managed details so well! I'm so envious.
