These are all great! I've been wanting to try working with clay again and these are great inspiration.  They also make me want to watch the Miyazaki films I haven't seen yet Smiley

I am a huge ghibli fan and absolutely love your little sculptures! My favorite is probably Calcifer, but it's hard to say because they are all wonderful! Great job!

These are AMAZING.

You make me want to make a No.  ALSO I will be creating a particular river spirit I think Wink

Super awesome.

As far as Glazes go, I've used the sculpy glaze but I prefer polycryllic (sp?)  They come in a huge can but honestly you'll spend SO MUCH more over time in those little bottles of sculpy glaze.  Just make sure you give the poly lots of dry time in a safe place.  I personally didn't find it too fumey but it never hurts to do it near an open window Smiley

haha, rmb to post ur creations too, i will be looking forward to see them!

and thks for ur suggestion. diane b has also pm-ed me a very comprehensive guide on finishes.. and after reading up a little, i think i will try Varathane out. Polycrylic may not be suitable in where I live, where humidity is >70% and temperature >30degC all yr round o-O. Smiley

I love these, especially the kodama!  I have a soft spot for the kodama - I once made some with icing to sit on my boyfriend's birthday cake.

love them! you're very talented! the ponyos are so cute!

another rec on glaze: the sculpey matte finish glaze is my favorite, it's very thin and i find a lot of the thicker glazes (triple thick especially) get gummy and can be hard to work with. play around though obviously atmospheric conditions are going to be a big factor.

(i have also used clear nail polish with varying degrees of success so that's something you could use if you're in a pinch... also gold ol' fashioned polyurethane.)
