The hardest part is making sure the artist likes it, LOL.

LOL. Sure you can man...I made it very easy for you to follow - you can do it...;)

Seriously tho, some people pick up the clay and find out they have a knack for it...heh...how you think I got started...:)

I may even start teaching one day, never know.

Maybe I try it someday. I always amazed by how you did that Galtow bust.

Oh, I've wanted to tell you this but keep forgetting it. The samurai is broken. I knocked it when I try to grab a phone. I still can straigthen it up. But then decided to put the bust back on it's box. :D

It's the red one, but it's OK man. The postal will cost you quite amount. I still can use the old one and no one know it's broken unless you tweak it. :)

The great thing about wax is you can use tinfoil to bulk out areas. Try that with sculpey and you get cracks from air escaping in the baking step. Still I do want to look into the wax side of things in the long run. Nice example of the process there!

Yep. I had cracks all over this guy. Drove me nuts but I had to finish the sculpt on a deadline for Robbie's one man show in Chicago in Dec. Been wanting to post some step by steps for a while now.
Thanks man.

Thanks man. We got a new one in the works...;)I will be documenting a special one (after the NYC con) that I'll be designing and would love for you to paint something on one of them if you get time. I think you'll like the platform shape I have in mind.

is wax (or similar) or sculpey?
Reply
:iconarthammer:
Arthammer Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Professional
No. Like night and day. Sculpey is very soft and the wax I use is very hard almost brittle.
