The name is Frankie by mangakasan The name is Frankie by mangakasan
Frankie is an OOAK commission for a client of FA who commissioned this piece as a gift for a friend (pinstripedtiger also on FA)< to whom Frankies design belongs to.
It was a very interesting and challenging commission as she's quite an unique mix of an goat and a lion and on top of that being an curvy lady (not to mention doing her hair, that was quite a big job <took me 3 evenings to do her mane and hairdo), when i started her out she looked quite strange but it's one of these projects that needs to be finished to look great, and along the way i started to love this character and thought she had something classy at the same time so for the final shoot i gave her a little prop (the red cloth) to make her look like some classy model or something XD (kinda like the ones you see on old paintings of a curvy lady on a sofa or holding a cloth that follows the body <i kinda failed with the cloth but haha what gives 8D)
She's about 6 inch tall, sculpted with super sculpey x sculpey firm over an armature frame and has self made/painted resin eyes, painted with acrylics and pastel dust, had multiple layers of glaze and varnish and was haired with tibetan lamb fur.

character belongs to pinstripedtiger (FA)

uhhh I'm trying to find a good way to make eyes like that, but so far with Liquid sculpey and just acrylic gloss I didn't have so much luck, so I started looking into resin, but people are saying that you can not bake resin with polymer clay :O now I'm seeing your figure and wonder, how the heck? should I just ignore the "don't bake it with sculpey" or did you apply the resin afterwards? :D

well.. i bake my resin eyes along with the sculpture and it doesn't alter them, only acrylic eyes or decorations will melt in the oven, but glass/wood en resin are going to be fine! but if you don't feel comfortable with that you can add them after with air drying clay etc

thank you :) now I'm just wondering if you bake your sculpture with the normal 130 Celsius?or on lower temperature for longer? ^^

i bake them on the suggested temperature for 1 hour and an extra 30 minutes on 110 C just to be safe :)

thank you alot :) guess I'm gonna make some "test" clay samples the with resin, to see if the resin behaves :) I wished they would sell small half glass beads in stores here, but it seems they only have 15mm or more ;_; which is too big for the sculptures I want to do.
btw. just because: I love your figures :D They are a good example on how lifely sculptures can look like ^^

i glue it on with fabri-tac glue, it adheres greatly and is quite strong it also doesnt yellow over time, i just try to apply little locks at a time and apply them so that it looks natural and that glue isn't notable
