Dragonicwolf Sculpture WIP by dragonicwolf Dragonicwolf Sculpture WIP by dragonicwolf
I saw packets of white air dry clay stuff for 8 bucks in the shops, so I thought I would give sculpturing a try. (I love to try new things)

This was very rushed, and the head sucks. But I think it turned out a little better than what I thought it would end up like with my kind of impatience and inexperience. I also do not have all those fancy tools but my pointy nails and random wire lying around the room made do.

The wings are just stumps now. I am contemplating on whether I should paint the body before I sculpt the wings , as they would be in the way terribly D:

Also as its drying, its cracking everywhere!!! SfdSDJHFSDJFSDJfh. Maybe the paint and varnish will cover those and hopefully it won't fall apart.

wow this looks so good!

and I've heard that sticking PVA glue over it before you paint fills the cracks so they aren't a problem, never tried it out myself mind so I wouldn't know if it really works ^^"

Bet it shall look epical when it is finished :D

Oh noes the cracks! I hope it holds up

Never tried to make a standard sculpture... I used o just use cardboard and wire to make a "skeleton" and then use paper and tape to finish up... Usually ended up with something semi poseable, sont do that now though
