PROYECTOSProyectos de Pintado de figuras, esculturas y modelados a escala
For the demonstration, I wanted to use a stronger, firmer sculpey clay.
The gray extra firm is perfect, because it is not rubbery like the Sculpey III. While it is more robust than the original white sculpey that I normally use, it is still designed to be carved somewhat easily.
Here's a quick review of the process.
I rolled out a slab of the clay onto a ceramic tile. This is a much better surface for baking, as it won't make your cookies smell like sculpey, which baking on a cookie sheet will do.
Also, those tend to flex and the sculpey gets too hot.
I did the usual sculpey shelf style bases as a quick test. I have some cork underneath the sheets of broken sculpey.
You can see that I was able to make a number of bases, and still have clay left over! I also added some sand and gravel around the edges and seams.
A few skulls were added for some extra imapct!
