431  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: To use fimo or to not use fimo? on: January 31, 2009 04:30:05 PM
Hey, thanks for all the info.

I literally just mean I use fimo clay (both classic and soft). But since I will be able to work with a skeleton, I'm not really interested in using anything else!

And I mean 8-10" (probably 8, not 10) tall as in the height of my monster. And by little I mean small (compared to other figures I have) not cute or simple.

Holy cow! Kudos on the site....it truly is an encyclopedia. I do know how to use a table of contents...lol...its just very difficult to read the incomplete sentances along with terminology I do not yet know. Aside from that, my OCD brain just wants me to compile it on my own referece sheet. Which I might just do. Good thing I have a week before I begin making it!!

Thank you so much for your help and suggestions  Grin

As a lover of comic book art...this totally does it for me!

And I''ve got to ask as well: what words did you use to search this because I'm having no luck (or brain, whichever!!

I'm not sure if you're asking whether you should use Fimo versus another brand/line of polymer clay (or even FimoClassic vs. FimoSoft), or if you're asking whether you should use polymer clay over an armature of some kind or just solid clay?

WOW...lol...I asked if I should use fimo or not. I was open to any other suggestion that may possibly work better than what I'm already using.

And thanks so much for all the info!! The site you linked me to is a tad difficult for me to follow, which is why I asked this question *after* viewing the site. I just find that the pages are so long, I lose my spot quickly, the text is far too small and I find the way its written to be confusing...possibly, I just need it dumbed down a bit...so I asked here Wink

I am REALLY new to this. So when you speak about "padding it out with tin foil" when discussing how the arms will be attached....I'm totally confsued as to what you mean by "padding out"....

More information about my sculptures; I want to create little monsters...I'm worried about giving too much away because I see it on here that poeple are making money off of other ideas and I would hate for that to happen to me.

I feel stupid for asking but I have to start somewhere!

Thanks Kish!

I didn't mention it. But tin foil and wire was exactly what I was going to use! Just wanted to ask some pros first ;)Cool!

Now are there any cool techniques to make it look seemless and not like I just slabbed up pices of clay. Also, does thickness matter at all?

Can you tell I'm new? hah

Well....that is my question! lol

I want to make little sculptures bout 8-10 inches tall. They will be fat...so I imagine using a ton of clay. Should I use the fimo I am currently using? If not, what may be best? Or would making a skeleton be best, and then covered it in the fimo?

Thanks Grin

I knew who it was from the thumbnail!  Good job! I also like the monochrome approach, and the chunky kinda style. Awesome!!!!   Smiley

I whole heartily agree.

I opened the thumbnail because of who it was! Awesome work, wicked style!!!

Ha ha...and I dito that!

This is rad! And an approach that I personally love!!!

Everything looks so sweet (pun intended....yeah I'm not that funny). I really like the lolly's!!

And I cant believe no one has mentioned it already (edit: oops...I see now someone else did mention too aha)....but you look like a spitting image of Claire from Heroes!! Hayden Penetierre (sp?)...anyways, very pretty!

I'm still a little lost...but I can't learn without making a few mistakes first, right? Thank you guys for all the tips!! I will definately be posting when I am finished...I'll want to show off my work somewhere Wink Also a big thanky ou for suggesting the quilter triangle....that was one of my worst fears; that it would not be straight and turn out wonky looking!

Well, here's to hoping!

Okay, so I've always WISHED I was great at sewing and used my machine for all sorts of projects that kept me busy. Unfortunately this is not the case. I've had my machine for many years and it has not been put to much use, other than the odd clothing repair. However, I have decided to make my friend, who is expecting, a baby blanket. I just just going to turn it inside out and do a basic stitch (can you tell how new I am, hah). The blanket is 20' x20'. Is there anything I should know, any tips, tricks that may may it easier?

I am also hoping to make myself a few throw pillow while I've got the machine out. I've goggled it several times and it seems to be pretty simple, sew and add stuffing. Again, any tip or tricks that might be helpful to me?

Thanks guys, I appreciate it!

Hey. I am new (Hello!) and I really hope I am posting in the right spot.  newbie can get lost in all these glorious crafts! Anyhow, I have a simple question, when compared to all the neat things everyone is doing, but I've got to start somewhere, right? So, I'm not the worlds best sewer, but I do it anyhow. I recently picked up a great fabric that I would like to turn into a throw pillow. I intend to just turn it inside out and sew away before stuffing the pillow. Seems easy enough. So before doing so I just wanted to ask for any advice/tips that you may give me to make a great pillow! Thanks Grin
