1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Tall Forest Beast Finally Complete! on: July 03, 2013 07:50:49 AM
Thanks everyone!  Grin

To make the surface details I watered down some clay and put it in a squeeze bottle. I then used that to "draw" the lines on the creature.

This one took a very long time to make!

He and all his friends are made of air drying clay, painted with acrylics, and resting on a wooden base.

Final size: 17 inches tall, 14 inches long, 8 inches wide.

I still need to take some nicer photos of the completed sculpture!

Here are some in-progess photos...

Two kitties in one?! Love them both.
I like the pose of the blue ones & the faces of the red ones  Grin

Forgot to ask, how big are they?

The blue one is about 10 inches long, and just under 6 inches tall.
The red one is 10 inches tall.

I would not have guessed these were made with super sculpey - when I saw them my first impression was "wow, I'll never get to make anything like that as I don't have access to a kiln"

What kind of wire to you use for the armature?
I only wish I had access to a kiln! If I ever got enough money to get a small kiln and pay to have the electrical work done to hook it up I would happily evict my car from the garage.  Grin  As for the wire, its just a mix of jewelry wire and floral wire. I don't think it matters too much what kind you use, as long as it is thick enough to give the support you want. Although some colored wire will bleed into the clay, so don't use those unless you plan to paint everything anyway.

I used super sculpey to make them.
I've tried a lot of different clays, but that's the one i get along with the best.  Smiley

I made a two-headed cat.

Then I decided I needed another one.

I kept track of how the second one was made.

First, I made a sketch and an armature out of foil.

Then I started adding the clay, and some wire to reinforce the legs.

More clay. At this stage it is just an ugly pink blob creature.

This is before and after baking. The eyes are glass beads that were set in place temporarily to ensure a perfect fit.

The eyes were removed, and the painting began.

And finally done!  Grin The eyes are glued in and the entire cat is finished with a matte varnish to protect the paint job.

kelesaii I'm so glad you liked everything! You'll have to let me know how those frozen acid pops are, they're supposed to be super sour, but I didn't get a chance to try them out (apearantly if you rip apart freezer pops before they're frozen they rip in half and make a huge mess  Tongue ).  And now that you've recieved I'll definately make up a post for the butterbeer cookies recipie, the leftovers serioulsy didn't last a day in my house.

Hope you have fun at the movies. I tried to make sure you have enough activities so you won't get bored even if you're like me and will be getting there at noon   Wink

I'll let you know on the acid pops. Grin I could have used all those great activities at the last movie, but this time I'll have to do them during or between movies.
My theatre is showing every single movie, starting with Sorcerer's Stone at 6 a.m. on the 14th!
And yes, I must be crazy for spending 20 hours watching movies at the theatre!!! But it will be wonderful! (and exhausting)

I have received my package, and it is awesome!
It came with a letter from Headmaster Snape, explaining everything I would need for my last year at Hogwarts.

First, some wonderful treats!
Edible Peruvian instant darkness powder, butterbeer cookies, and acid pops(they only need a freezing charm before eating)
The cookies smell wonderful, but i may need the recipe. There won't be any left by movie night!

Next, a bag to carry all my goodies in! My favorite spell on one side, my owl patronus on the other.
And in my favorite colors of purple and green too! (That green matches the green on my studio walls! Grin)

A frame in Ravenclaw colors. I'll have to get a picture taken with my friend at the movie and put it in here.

But wait! There's more! Ivory wasn't kidding when she said the box was packed tight.
A monster book of monsters!

And on the inside...

Sour Licorice Wands, A set of potions (all carefully labeled), Muggle Studies puzzles, "Magical Photography" coloring pages with color "quills"
Divination prediction sheets, History of Magic quiz, Marauder's map, owl parchment sheets, extra quills, quick reference books
and I hope I haven't missed anything!

And a group shot!

I Love Everything, Ivory. Thank you so much!
