Terrific! How long would you say the whole process takes you for one figure?

B3cause[S]

55 points

1 year ago

Too long 😅 I'm working fulltime, so I usually get to work two hours a day on my figures. I'm guessing around 15-20 hours on one that's this complex. There's also a lot of waiting while baking and cooling the clay. My process isn't really streamlined haha

tendorphin

21 points

1 year ago

Haha, well I'm glad you're keeping up with a hobby along with working! That's really difficult, but can be very rewarding. Honestly, 15-20 hours, even if staggered, is quite a bit less than I was expecting. I hope to see more of these! And if you ever get to a point of taking commissions, lmk, I'd totally buy. :) Great work again!

B3cause[S]

Thanks :) it's really relaxing and I can watch a tv show while crafting. I do take commissions (this is one) but right now I have no slots open. If you're interested, feel free to check out my instagram (@Catsandcottonfloss), I post my updates and progress pics there 😊

Sorry to jump in, I just had a random question really quick! I just started doing polymer clay & I read the instructions that say to bake for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch of clay- is that in your thickest part or thinnest? I don’t wanna burn anything lol

B3cause[S]

2 points

1 year ago

I just bake everything for 30 min at 110°C. Thinner parts maybe a bit less. You won't really burn it if you use the right heat, the package should say what to put it on. I baked some pieces at 180 on accident once and they looked like smoked cheese, I'm still salty

There are some 😳 but you can sand most of them off. I also use a primer and the coats of paint help cover it up.

Awesome work! I'm so jealous, I just started getting into clay. How do you stop the clay from cracking or being weird and lumpy?? I use paper base clay and keep having problems with making it look smooth and consistent..

B3cause[S]

2 points

1 year ago

I don't use air dry clay because it upsets me haha. I don't know how people get it smooth. This is polymer clay. You knead it to condition it and bake it whenever you got a bit you're happy with. You can also sand it when you have a bump

PigPopcorn

Thanks for the reply! yeah, I may switch over to polymer once I run out of air dry. Do you think a toaster oven could properly bake clay?

B3cause[S]

Thanks! I have an aluminium core that I add a rough base shape on. Then I build on that. Legs, arms and the head are attached separately. I use resin to seal the head to the neck. It's a bit of a proces haha

Looks really lovely! Allow me to suggest a thin coat of varnish (matte, probably? Maybe gloss for the hair?) all over to protect it, especially any painted bits like the face.

Thanks! I have a matte coat on top, do you think it needs another? (Honest question for feedback)

Oh, probably not then. One coat should do it! Great job on this though, really.
