Gosh these are so amazing ;_;
What are they made out of though? I'm curious - I'd love to start doing my own sculptures.

do you start with a mold you made and then branch off from that to create individual features in each sculpture? I am trying to figure out this process. I make much larger sculptures on mugs and faces, out of clay, which seems to be a very recalcitrant media at times!

especially when it cracks in drying!

I start with a ball of aluminum foil and build each face from scratch. I think my faces would be about mug size. The face alone is about 3"
I work in polymer clay wish doesnt have the issues of earth clays but it has its own annoying little quirks.

your work is so amazing! Polymer clays are expensive, tho. I get my clay 25 lbs for $12.50, and the price drops with each 100 lbs that you buy. What brand of polymer clay do you use and where do you buy it? I want to try it out. These don't have to be fired, right?

Premo is the brand I use most often but, I sometimes mix brands.
This clay is baked in the oven at 275

thanks so much for this link. I've saved it into my Google Docs for whenI want to start working with polymer clay. Soft latex interest me also. I could make some pretty wicked looking masks out of my monsters.
