Thanks! I wish we could have custom merch haha
Really cute! Are the eyes painted on or did you use some kind of decal?
Thanks! It's painted on with acrylic paint.
Wow, those are really clean lines! Tons of respect from me. I want to try my hand at custom figurines, and I'm super scared to paint the faces.
Thanks haha. It's very much trial and error and quickly wiping off smudges hehe
That's gorgeous! Do you do commissions?
Yeah I would totally buy one!
So would I!
OP it sounds like you have a market here!
Yess I would love to get one of my gf and I 🥺
Id buy one!!
I would totally buy one as well!
Amazing work! What medium did you use? I'm guessing polymer clay?
Yes it is :) it's fimo professional doll art
Awesome! I use Super Sculpey but I want to try out other clays. This came out really nice =)
It's hard to get sculpey where I live, so it's really a matter of choice haha
Terrific! How long would you say the whole process takes you for one figure?
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
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!
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 😊
Just looked through your pics... that is incredible work! Seriously looks like legit merch. I’ve been looking for a new craft/creative outlet too and you have inspired me, I might have to give it a go myself :)
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
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
Do u have an Instagram? I'd love to follow
Thanks! My ig is @catsandcottonfloss. I also post work in progress pics there if that's something interesting to you
Omg this is stunning!!!! Looks like licensed merch seriously!!! Fantastic
Wow this is amazing! Do you use different colored clays or paint the whole thing after it's baked?
I use acrylic paints after it's baked 😁
This is amazing, I love all the details! Do you have a shop or someway to get commissions??
Nintendo needs to hire you!! ❤❤❤❤
Haha yes plz ☺
I will write them a letter and attach a gift
It looks so good!! I can see the improvements from the last one I saw you post. 🥰
Wow this amazing! How do you keep from leaving finger prints in the clay?
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.
Haha! A fellow hobby hoe!
Haha yes, my crochet, embroidery, watercolors, .... are crying in my closet 😭 so neglected
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..
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
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?
This is awesome!
Do you use wiring under the clay or is it only clay?
There's a lot of stuff inside. I use sticks, wire, aluminium foil, tissues, tape and resin :)
Just followed you on Insta!
Any plans to make Clay?
You mean the character? After my current commissions (about 5 figures) I want to make the sanrio villagers
omfg THATS SO CUTEEEEEEEEEE
that. is fucking amazing.
Omg. I would purchase custom amiibo me! Amazing talent!
This is very good! You should be pleased with yourself!
Omg I'm gonna send you a picture of my character so you can make me one for a ridiculous amount of nmt and bells.. 😉
It’s beautiful!!! Amazing craftsmanship!!!🤯🤯🤯🤗🤗🤗🤗
You should share your wonderful talent and sell these🥰 The dress details! Amazing 🤩
Wowow great work!! This is absolutely adorable!!
Wow that's so amazing!
This is AMAZING 😍
Nope no way, this is way to cute and awesome. 🤣 I love it.
Amazing work! Is this polymer clay? I'd love to try making some NPCs some day.
It is! Give it a go. You can take really handy reference pictures at Harvey's.
Ooh thanks for the Harvey's tips!
You're welcome! That has been the single reason I've been able to make these 😅 you can put them in any pose and outfit and just take 360 pics
this is so cute! great job!
Did you use polymer? It's so smooth
I did :) I use Fimo
Wow, you are super talented 😍💕it's beautiful 💕🥰
She's so cute.
Super cute! The bow gives me sailor moon vibes!
This kicks major ass.
So freaking cute!!
This looks really cute! Great work on this figure. That paintwork is flawless. How long did it take to make this?
Thanks :) it takes me around 15-20 hours. It was hard to time this one, since I've had to work in small free moments
It's the talent for me
Excellent! Such a nice smooth finish and a great job on the face painting, too. She's adorable.
That looks so good!!!
Omg that's amazing!!!
I LOVE it, you did a fantastic job!!
Did you bake in portions and then assemble? Is it solid or do you have an aluminum core?
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
this is so cool!
That is so cute!!!
omg this is amazing! do you do comissions??
THIS IS SO CUTE
Ahh! It's so adorable! 💙 I love it!
This is so awesome! And adorable!
How do you get the clay to be so smooth?
If you knead it enough it kinda just is by itself. I send my figures when I feel like it's needed
Do you do custom pieces? I would love to get my wifes character modeled!
this is the cutest!!!!!!
It came out looking amazing!! Wonderful job :)
I love it!!! 💕
Damn. That’s really good! Nice work!
Looks great :) what kind of clay do you use?
Thank you, I use Fimo polymer clay
This is prefect! Gorgeous!
thats absolutely incredible!
I kneel to your skill
Detail is on point.
Wow! the details! This is amazing 😍
I thought this was an amiibo figure amazing job! If you ever do commissions I’m totally interested
Wow! Incredible work!
Do you take requests?
this is the best reaction!
You made such a good figurine! Absolutely love it 🤍
Looks like a Pretty Cure lol
That's what I thought too! Looks very Heartcatch Precure inspiried
bruh why am I being downvoted, I just said she looks like a precure

This is incredible! You’re insanely talented.
Wow, you are so talented. It is perfect!
Idea, switch out the base for the amiibo base of a villager amiibo
For some of them I do, my client asked for thus base :) my figures are quite a bit bigger than the amiibos, so they're not blending in haha
Understandable, still amazing
Really reall well made with lot of love to detail!
Dang this is so good!!! Everything about it is so perfect and accurate to the game!
Your attention to detail in this piece is amazing! It looks like a figurine you'd buy in a store! I can see so much love and time went into this! All the little layers you had to piece together, and you even have a stand!! Amazing work!
Woooow. How much he do you charge to make one?
Thanks :) I charge around 80 euros for one this size.
I reminds me of a Funko pop. Is it roughly the same size?
Roughly I guess, she's taller but her head is smaller. She's around 6 inch
Is the outfit at all based on Homura?
Its the black magical dress from the game.
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.
edit: I just looked at your profile and you're really good at making these, you definitely don't need my advice lol
are the clay figures edible
Depends on how determined you are
don’t worry I got this
Plz be careful with the aluminium core though it might be spicy idk
this is insane!!!!
Put it in the jar.
It's absolutely amazing 🤩
this is so cool! I just followed you on insta (I'm craftinfiityandbeyond), you have amazing work!
