    Thaks Jamie! I think the problem was, that after the baking I have put her to my bench (well usually theres 18°C at my room, and its really cold, after the oven temperature...). I think I should let her cool off at the oven. I have follewd this with the hair, and I coldn't find any crack!

    She just gets better and better! Nice detail and brilliant face!
    Can't wait to see your next work ;)

    Finally she's done!:)

    OK! I can say, that my first figure is done!:) After sanding, she got a coat of surfacer and a coat of gloss lacquer (Its an acrilyc lacquer, from the can, it can hid small inperfections!)! In realiti, she isn't as thick, as in the pictures, I think it is from the cameras Macro distorts it a little...:mad:
    I'm not really satisfied with all her details, but the first time, I think she's ok. I have learned a lot, there are many thing, that I will have to take more attention in the future!
    Hope You like her Guys!
    I wish You all a Happy New Year!:)

    I said it before: I think you did a briljant job but not just for a first time!
    Her right hand looks completely right now. I like her!

    Georch you have achieved a very good figure and your sculpting is way beyond a begginer for skill,hope we will see more of your work.

    I also am starting to sculpt with polymer clays,Fimo,Supersculpey etc and i prefer to boil it rather than bake it.
    Place the work in boiling water for 5 minutes and it is done,just let it cool in the water,you will find it remains the same colour when boiled rather than turning very dark as it does when baked.you will find this is a lot faster and cheaper than baking and you get the same result.

    Hi Zoltan,

    Congratulations on a brilliant first effort at sculpting. She's really improved since I saw your first pics. I'm sure your next effort will beeven better.

    Steve, thanks for the tip about boiling poly clays,I must try it.

    She has come about well.

    Well done for a first figure. When can we see her painted?

    Steve, I too am going to try boiling a figure- sounds interesting!!

    Thank You all for the kind words!:)
    I will try to paint her in the near future and I will post pictures as it goes along!
    Hopfully I will start my new figures in the weekend, I will keep you posted, to see what you think about it! Next projects will be civilians too!
    Steve, thanks for the advice! I will try to boil my sculptures! (And I think, if I do it this way, I won't have the small cracks, that appeared sometimes, when I was baked the figure!)
    Thanks again!
    Wish you all the best!
