I swear I’ve been doing work, just not posting many WIPs. Just finished up my favorite bug Pokemon, first of my PokedeXY art challenge (I’m going to give myself a year I finish because I’m trying to be realistic and don’t want to half ass any of these)
WHHHAAAT this is so cool
How do you get the pieces of clay so clean like
that is some sort of magic man
My only secret:
Pasta rollers are wonderful, wonderful inventions. Roll out a thin and perfectly uniform sheet of clay, cut out your design/layer/whatever with an exacto, then press it into the sculpture while trying not to ruin that nice hard edge.
I probably bake my sculpts far more often than I should, but it definitely helps me avoid crushing details when adding new ones.
And I guess the eldritch magic doesn’t hurt…
