Thanks! This particular sculpt will be for sale at my Zenkaikon artist alley booth (March 22-24) but whatever does not sell at the convention will be immediately posted on my Etsy shop at then end of March. So keep posted!
I'm pretty busy this month, but when I find the time I'd like to create this sculpt again for sale on my Etsy shop (probably early April)
Wicked! I kinda want to adopt them, since they're so cute and im going to Zenkaikon
I make little clay things too, though i'm not very good. I don't paint my stuff, they're entirely colored clay.Do you find sculpting in one color/ translucently and painting on the colors easier than sculpting everything in their respective colors?
Cool! Please do come by my booth and check 'em out in person, it'd be cool to see a fellow deviant at the con
And I've been using translucent/white clay since I started last year so I can't tell you which way is easier. I just have always enjoyed painting my sculpts. But I will say that there are a ton of pro clay sculptors here on D.A that primarily use colored clay and find that way better than painting too!
I tend to stock up on clay when there are huge sales going on in my local craft stores (AC Moore and Michaels). Then I pretty much wipe out their white and translucent clay sections every time there is one
I primarily use translucent Sculpey III since I paint all my sculpts. I find that the translucent color is a tad bit firmer than other colored versions (or maybe that's just me?), so it's just the right consistency for me to work with. The colored ones also tend to be too soft for me to work with and easily attract lint and fingerprints. I've recently been experimenting with stronger clays (Premo and Fimo) but can't tell you much about those yet haha. G'luck!
