    I had to start again so it’ll look different. I’ll give an update once I get the head done again.

    Wasn’t happy with how I was doing the body lol.

    When working with Sculpey, you can bake and rebake to an extent. This is the method I prefer over simply building up the figure completely in clay and baking it in a single shot. I find that working fully in uncured clay to be wholly unsatisfying: it's difficult to get finer details or sculpt a completely flat and smooth surface. Once you work on one side, you flip it over to find that your hand crushed the other side. Just buy some liquid Sculpey and use that to adhere new clay to baked stuff.
    I find that working in clay simply takes patience more than anything. If you keep going at it and refine it, I think pretty much anyone has the capacity to make their own figure.


    Yeah plus you risk it cracking
