Oh my...now that is an intriguing looking creature. So cute and whimsical looking, in his own little way. (And ever so slightly unsettling, too. Best way to look, surely!) I have to say what really caught my attention here - aside from that strangely endearing face (!!) - was the gorgeous 'plumage' you've used on the body and tail. Really, I want to pet Beaky now. He looks extremely fuzzy. Hehe. In my humble opinion it's a lovely sculpture, with a real sense of character.

A friend of mine gave me a piece of fake fur and said "Make something strange!" and BeakyBird was born...=)

Does it really work well? I've been trying to find some sort of fabric glue that actually *works*, but to no avail thusfar...

It works on the dolls (no one has complained that their costuming has come apart, touch wood), but I can't vouch for it's use in the real world...although it DOES hem curtains well! :laughing:

:lol: That is funny! I'm going to have to try it - I just need something to tack odd bits of trim down until I can sew them...

Fabritac would work well for that...when you're sewing impaired like me, you're always on the lookout for shortcuts!

Sculpt asprin? well that wouldnt take long at all lol. I have a question for you though...
At what point in modeling the heads of your sculptures do you place the eyes in.... before the eyebrow rides?
I have so many different techniques for making eyes.. but it seems like there should be a better way

I put the eyes into the foil armature before there is any clay on the head, if I'm using glass eyes. When I sculpt the eyes (not very often), I use prebaked balls of clay and stick 'em in after I have a layer of clay on, the finish the eye and move on to the rest of the face. I hate to paint eyes :bleh:, so I usually use glass...

:O ooo very interesting ^^;
I aaalways scupt the eyes because I use plasticine instead of clay. I find it difficult to work with clay because it dries out while I'm working with it :(
The glass eyes look great thought ^^

:O that sounds pretty good. What do you have to do for painting stuff? Acrylic? (I don't know much about paints) and some kind of glaze?
Reply

oddfae Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2005  Professional Artist
Either acrylic or Genesis oil paints -- the Genesis paints heat-set at the same temp the clay is fired. I know some artists use an airbrush, but I haven't learned to do so, yet!

The companies that manufacture the clay make sealers/glazes for polyclay, or one can use a spray like Krylon...
