    Hi Pfer's,

    This is a current sculpting project/commission for a chap that will be looking to make this a small commercial release. At this stage outer layer is entirely hand sculpted in a polymerclay mix of supersculpey medium/firm and Moltenclay.
    Armature wire was initially covered in sylcreatives 'Geomfix' which is an extra hard curing 2 part epoxy putty. I've started using this process the last few times, apply polymer clay to uncured putty which then sets hard but leaves a good starting base of soft polymer to build onto.
    Thanks for looking:)[IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]

    Thank you very much SUPER ANTO. I have some small glass beads of various sizes I've purchased from Greenstuff World. I decided these would be a good size to use as eyeballs in this scale.

    I'm only too happy to help show my process, which is one of many used. It's ever changing and evolving with every new sculpt.

    Thank you Malcolm. Yes, it can be quite a process which has plenty of challenges along the way. I hope I can keep the same level of consistency up throughout the whole sculpt.
