Hi all! I created a sculpey version of Kevin for the Three Tiny Movie Things swap. (My partner was a big fan of the movie Up).
I tried some new techniques (new for me anyway) and wanted to share how she turned out!

Roaming the jungle... I lured her in with her favorite:

You can see on the beak my failed attempt at creating a gradient. Perhaps it would have worked better if I had a pasta machine and not just a spray paint can to roll it out with.
So, she was built over a florist's wire frame:

I also used some wire in making the little feathers on top of the head:

I was worried they'd fall out, but they stayed in perfectly.

Maybe someday I'll figure out the color gradients for 3D sculpey projects. Of course, I'll never get it as smooth as Pixar does with their CG.
Thanks for looking! C&C welcome.

awesome! Grin im sure your swap partner was thrilled to bits Smiley

if your interested in doing polymer clay in a serious way (probably not so applicable if your sculpting) i would recommend investing in a pasta machine. not only does it open up a whole new range of colour blends but its useful for creating sheets of solid colour (especially very thin sheets that can be harder to roll out with a rolling pin)

Hmm, I've only just started to think about mildly more professional polymer clay creations, so I haven't gotten the courage to allow myself down that aisle at the craft store as of yet.  Wink
Do you know if there is a way to make a uniform color gradient for three-dimensional things out of clay? I've been google-ing, but I haven't come up with anything of use.

Thanks for the comments everyone!
