6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / evil possessed snowman sculpt on: December 12, 2018 09:47:46 PM
this was my first attempt to sculpt to 28mm scale.
 my brother is creating a christmas themed Mordheim (an old table top miniature war game) warband so i decided to make him a little somthing to go with it. i didnt want to put a lot of effort into painting it as i thought he would almost certainly want to paint it himself but because it is a gift i used coloured clay to sculpt it because  i wanted it to look a little more impressive than it would have if i sculpted it in scrap clay.
i did add a wash of water blue acrylic paint to his body to pick up a little detail though. i textured the snow using a texture sponge, it gets a lot of use, usually with black clay so rolling the white clay over it made it nicely grubby which fits well with the dark theme.

brilliant, i love the way you have used the broken cones to make the flower like succulents (i dont know what they are called). very imaginative and very effective

And a Q- a heat gun- do you use it before baking? -I'm trying to learn clay work but am such a newb and never heard of heat gun used for clay! And I always appreciate your tips and tutes- it's so kind of you to share!
thank you  Smiley
yes, i used the heat gun before baking. i only cured the mushroom caps for a minute with the heat gun because they are so small. it wont cure them properly so you still need to bake it but it sets the clay enough that it wont warp or move while you carry on sculpting. i also used it to set the stalks of the mushrooms so they didnt bend or move while baking.   
mine is just a cheap heat gun sold for embossing so it only has one setting but you can buy more complex models. i also have used mine to set heat setting oil paints rather than bake the entire item again.
