Umbreon Sculpey Process by chi-u Umbreon Sculpey Process by chi-u

BEWARE, HUGE FILE! READ THE DECRIPTION FOR DETAILS ON HOW I MADE IT AND WHAT I USED!



Sorry for the crappy photo's! >.< I took them on my phone D': I'm gonna buy a professional camera soon though :3 because I want it for when I make mods to my motorbike.

My first sculpey sculpture! :la:
Its umbreon : D
Still gotta paint it.. and I burnt to ears and tails OTL Oh well, lucky its a dark coloured pokemon :XD:

I still have to paint it, but I'll upload some more pics once its done.

Any suggestions on what I can make next? I wanna do all the eeveelutions, not sure if I'll sell them yet. Maybe when I get better. I wanna make smaller charms to sell and save clay, so hopefully some of you can suggest some kind of charms to make? :) I'm thinking about making themed pot hangers. You know, those things that hang or cling to the edge of things... what are they called? =P

Use this as reference if you like. I used Super Sculpey, 1.25mm wire, wire cutters/plyers and masking/crepe tape to fill in the wire a bit more, and to help the clay stay put better. You can see that in some of the pictures. I also used a various amount of tools I have, just regular clay tools.

I baked for 15 mins, but even so, that began to overcook the legs a little and burn the ears and tail tips, so probably 10 minutes. Warning, it will still be kinda soft when it gets removed from the oven, gotta let it cool to go hard, just like cookies! :dummy:

I'm going to use sandpaper to smooth out the lumps a bit, because it is almost impossible to smooth it out completely, unless you bake it first, then add a thin skin of clay over the top, but that would be very difficult still! I also cut the tail skeleton off later as it was placed wrong, which you can see in the images, then, I made the tail piece, stuck a piece of wire in the butt, and slowly placed the tail on, then smoothed it out to join it to the body. I used the same technique with the ears and the head, because the neck on the skeleton was actually too long, so i just cut it off with scissors and my wire cutters, and then used the left over wire to position the head (after I already made the head piece) like I did with the tail.

Wish me luck with my next sculpture :D
