it just takes patience and it all depends on how detailed you want them, the more detail expect it to take longer.

Fantastic, I reeaaly like this one. You muust tell me how you managed to the the wing membraine so thin, usually I put it over wire mesh but it still turns out rather thick.

i used a glue stick to roll it really thin then just attached it each section is a diferent piece execpt on the left wing got most of them in one big piece.


i recomond a rolling pin works better than a glue stick

really? huh i never thought of just the clay by itself..im suprised it heald and didnt warp or crack. Well I cant do that cause the wings im making are way too large and have to be in a certian position x3

mine usally dont get over a foot in length, i like to work smaller. he was also on his back when i baked and his wings sitting on a tin foil support.

Ahhh I see that makes sense now. I'd do that with Arty but sadly he must be standing so I'm going to have to suck it up and deal with the wire mesh x3

Very cool!

Did you use wireframing for it? Thats the bake-able clay right? How did you keep it from warping?

he has a wire spine legs neck tail and arms and wing fingers, but the real seceratt? lots and lots of tin foil. his body has tin foil under it and same with the two long fingers but when i baked him he was on his back with foil under his head butt and wings to hold them up.

Nice trick! I will remember that!
So essentially it is a tin sculpture with a clay surface?

I wonder why they never cover that in claymation class....?

bolthound Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
well if your moving it alot a tin base isn't that flexiable wireframe would work but you need flexiable enough wire, thats why tin is good for baking casue its sturdy and dosen't bend

yeah but in the beginning of claymation class they just teach you how to make sturdy "concept" figures. (meaning they don't move, they are just reference statues.)

modeling clay is better, it forms better, playdough is to rubery, but fun to make burgers out of.

is modeling clay harder to work with?

it just holds better and forms better then playdough, not as rubbery
