WIP fennec fox by LisaToms WIP fennec fox by LisaToms
Some wip shots of my fennec fox master model I'm working on. It looks much better in person ( I don't understand why the fur texture looks so rough in the photos, and the nose looks bigger than in person too >.<)

Anyways, just try to imagine it with the enormous ears x3

Can't wait to finish one! :la:

(made with super sculpey and a bit of super sculpey firm for the nose)

I have some questions,
Are these molds?
If they are, where can you get them?

The parts you can see in the photo are the original sculpture made of polymer clay by me.
The finished product is molded by myself from this original sculpture

I'm very curious about how you make your beautiful creatures. If you don't mind I have some quick questions =^_^=

Are the eyes store bough?
And since you use a master mold to make the faces, are you able to put the eyes in after the clay is dry? (though I'm not sure what is used, I've only worked with originals in sculpy, never made molds)
How do you fasten the faces to the plush part? Any tricks to make the two look like one rather than fake? (yours looks so believable)

ok :)

- Nope, I make them of clear resin
- Yes, I just make the eye holes a bit bigger than the eye. So it's just a taking your time to put the eyes in, in an specific way and move them until they are in the correct position.
- The faces are made of urethane resin
- I'm not sure if I understand the question xD. To integrate the hard parts to the fur you need to paint them in a color as exact as possible to the fur color and trying to simulate the fur tones

can you paint super sculpey? also, is it safe to fire the clay with the glass eyes in it, or should i wait to glue them in afterwords? i'm also not sure about air bubbles....could it explode in the oven?please help! thanx!
Reply
:iconlisatoms:
LisaToms Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Professional General Artist
Yes super sculpey can be painted. Anyways I think it's better to put a primer over it first.
I cooked sculpey with glass beads and it worked well. Anyways expose them in a very high temperature.
What do you mean with air bubbles?? Air bubble in the glass eyes? I have no idea because every situation is different. I can only say that I baked sculpey with glass beads and didn't explode xD

RobotsLoveU Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
like when theres a trapped-air bubble inside the clay.my art teacher says that if its big enough, it will heat up and blow up my project!that's why he tells me to use slabs of clay instead of wads.^^;

LisaToms Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Professional General Artist
Oh, never heard something like this... But I think this would happen with the normal airdry clay, not the polymer clay. This never happened to me with super sculpey and I sculpt in wads of clay

Hi! Super sculpey IS paint-able pretty much all POLYMER clay's are paint-able and glaze-able :).And yes you can bake with the glass beads since glass is safe for the oven, i don't recommend using plastic beads tho because its possible for it to melt. If you want for it to stay-put into the clay you can use "TLS" (Translucent Liquid Sculpey)Its basically liquid clay that can be used in many different ways, its almost like bake-able glue used for polymer clay's :)
