I could've swore I remember a post of yours that says you sell these, but I cannot find any links or anything. Did I just imagine that? Regardless, she's gorgeous, telluric and breathtaking. Thank you for filling the world with beautiful things.
I think a lot of people like it because of the expression in her face. Her eyes look kind of sad, but her mouth is giving a little quirky half smile. It's wonderful. You're one of my favourite artists that I watch, mostly because you're so unique with what you do !
Her eyes are pained,but can be interpreted diffenrtly as a kind of ecstacy. I leave that open.. I really didnt know they would look that dark. They are brown in person ,but look like black pits in photos. Thank you. I am that!
Thank you. I tried the style again for my Alice peice..every once in a while I want to go from classic proportion to large doll like heads. Im very interested in what you did with the clay head that shows veins. If Im not mistaken its TLS or fimo gel in a mold.. Ive tested it myself but with genesis added to color the clay. I didnt think to add veins to it. I think it has potential ,but putting eyes inside would be difficult. Plus of course you have to make a figure in parts.
I think with a sock mold you could get the backs of the heads and bodies too. have you devloped the technique any farther?
Back, finally! The whole clay head I did that shows the veins, I rolled out a *very* thin sheet of translucent sculpey and layered it on top of the rest of the clay. You can bake the stuff over and over again so you can work it up in layers if you want, you just have to take care with the temperature of the oven.
Wow I woudlnt have guessed you uses sheets of clay because the clay is so translucent..almost clear looking! Did you dunk it in a ice bath after curing? Trans sculpy... is that Premo frost or actaul super sculpy?
I work some of my stuff in layers,but not thin like that with stuff in between. Do you mean because of the darkening effect from over baking or are you talking about another reason to take care of the temp? How so..do you undercure untill the last layer? Also ..instead of red veins do you think bluegreen veins would work? or maybe that would look wrong somehow.. I want to make a zombie peice and this technique might work for that. sorry about the bombardment of questions!
Do you use a pasta roller? If you have an Atlas its thinnest setting is *very* thin. I did use ice, for some pieces I rub the ice ON it because dunking it really isn't really possible. All of my polymer clay is kinda old, I haven't heard of Premo Frost (sounds awesome) what I used was Sculpey III translucent, if I remember correctly! And yeah, it yellows easily if the oven is too hot, and it wont' reach good translucence if the oven is too cool (and it'll crack later). If you want the veins to seem closer to the surface use red (like just under the skin) but if they are deeper, use blueish. All the blood in your body is red but because the way light passes through your skin, it makes the veins deeper appear blue. God I love science.
Yes I have an atlas. Ok I will try rubbing with ice, I know thats suposed to help clarity. premo frost used to be called premo translucent with bleach. The bleach is suposed to help it not yellow so much.
See I think it would be cool to have some fine fibers,like red lint to make spider veins blotchy blushing on the surface of skin. then a layer of deeper red veins that are larger, then the blueish veins. But I heve to sculpt a skull like shape right? To put teh thin layers on.. then build it up from the inside out.
