Tut and art by Moi :3
And It's really nice to see your first scoulpting ever made xD It get's less intimidating to try then haha
Trying to make a little dragon, though I forgot the wing armature (oops OxO lol), so it'll be a wingless dragon. xD
Hope to someday get as good as you~ <3
You've probably already discovered this buuut. Thought I'd share, just in case you hadn't, or in case you have a better technique.
I have two questions:
when you do the pre-bake, do you keep the ''real'' baking temperature and just bake it half the time it should be?
Do you know if it also works good for the soft sculpey?
Which kind of paint do you use (very liquid or with higher viscosity)? How do you do to dont ''fill'' the texture on your sculpting when you paint it?
thanks a lot!
Now onto your questions, when i do my pre-bakes i bake the sculpt for about 10 or 15 minutes between the 110 and 130 Celsius degrees, basically these pre/in between are just to harden parts that are finished so i cant smudge them out when i progress after, so it doesn't need a very long and thorough bake.
As for painting i use acrylic paints, (you can even use the very cheap ones you can buy from supermarkets) but i use acrylics from the brand amsterdam which are more lightfast and better in pigment quality (as you can imagine you cant sell stuff that will fade out to soon or is of bad quality XD) also i use pastels and mica powders a lot to paint my sculptures with, as for keeping the texture and avoid visible strokes of piled up paint, i either airbrush the acrylic paints on or i thin them with water and use a soft brush and just keep layering until it looks even and without patches, when you work with pastels you just dust them on and fixate each layer, with this technique your textures/details wont go lost either, just basically don't slap to mach paint on it at once, just keep the paint thin and in small quantity on your brush, it will take a lot longer this way but the result is worth it
I have been trying to learn hw to texture my sculptures for a long, long time!
I'm going to try this one day , and if I fail I am coming to you for therapy lol!!
