Rainee Sculpture by crystal-kyogre Rainee Sculpture by crystal-kyogre
Just a quick upload of whom I just finished.
I sculpted her yesterday, painted today. Off and on, more or less. She was fun to do, actually.

She's made of Sculpty white clay, then painted with acrylics... yup.

enjoy! =D

Iris-Sempi asked me to do a little how-I-did-it. So I'll put that here.

1. Got Sculpty plain molding clay (I think a big box is about $12).
2. Kneaded it until soft and moldable.
3. Broke of pieces in apporx size to how big I wanted hte body part to be (separate parts for: body, legs, tail, head, mane, and ears).
4. I started with shaping the body, so I knew if the legs would be too big or too small.
5. Next came the legs, which I rolled out tapered tubes, then bend them into shape.
6. When attaching the parts to the body, rough up the two surfaces that will be making contact, this give a stronger hold. Then smooth them together.
7. Then the tail came next. The swirls are plastic coated paper clips bent into shape.
8. Last came the head. I molded the head shape, then attached it. After it was on, I attached the mane and ears.
9. I did all the little details last, like the toes and the eyes/mouth. That was all done with a pin tool.
10. Bake time! Cool time! Yay! Now I can paint!
11. I laid down her main fur colour, the very light blue. I needed a couple of coats of that.
12. Then the details, like the rainbow and the spots.
13. Then last but not least, after the paint was all good and dry, I mixed up a glaze/glitter mix to give her that shiny look.
13. All done! Photo shoot!

I hope that helps!

Dude. So fucking awesome. I was worried the wires would end up being too abrupt of a change sticking outta the clay, but it looks really great. Love the rainbowness and the bubbley patterns and the great character her face has. XD It looks like Arlow, kinda~ :3
