duct tape is like the force. There's a light side, and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.

christinaX, until megjen gets back with her photos, you can see other examples of using (permanent) armatures under polymer clay sculpts on this page, if you want:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/armatures-perm.htm
(click on the subcategories called Aluminum Foil, Wire, Mesh.... they kind of overlap)
And there are more examples & lessons on this page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sculpture.htm
(click on Websites... armatures are near the top of the links)

There really isn't a best kind... though some brands and types of polymer clay "sculpt" better than others.   SuperSculpey is one choice, and it's cheaper by volume that other brands (when not purchased online or at sales anyway), but clayers have different favorites and also diff. favorite mixes of brands.  You can check out some of their comments on the "best" clays to sculpt with on the same page linked to above, if you want to read various opinions... the first category is what you'll want.

I really like it! Great detail and painting job. I think you should paint the eyes.

I actually love the eyes on this as is. Furthermore, I actually love every last bit of this as is. That's amazing. Really impressive that you can do so well at sclupting, painting, and just imagining something of that sort. It's all fantastic, and I hit myself some "THIS ROCKS" button.

Nice, does he have an armature? What kind of clay? I'd paint the eyes, you did such a nice job on the rest Smiley
