Acute Sculpt by krazykrista Acute Sculpt by krazykrista
I sculpted this as a Christmas gift for a friend! It's of course based on the tiny little Acute image in my Nightmare painting:


Polymer clay, wood base, wire and aluminum foil for the armature, vintage glass eyes.

Does the clay dry by itself or do you need to bake it? I'm amazed at the shape it's keeping!

You bake it, and unlike terra cotta, stoneware, and porcelain, polymer clay can be baked in your oven at home. :)

No way! That's awesome. Thanks!!

Way!
And yeah, it is! :D Check it out...it's quite excellent to work with. Look for Sculpey Firm. Comes in a white and green box and the clay is gray. :)

Checked it out and found it, thanks! Good thing I have a gift card, I'd be broke by the time I got all the supplies and the Sculpey lol. Do you always recommend the Firm one over the original?

I'd recommend the pink sculpey or the gray, but not the white or terra cotta stuff. (Well, I've not worked with the terra cotta to be completely fair.) The white kind is far too soft and doesn't hold its form well. I don't use the pink anymore since it's somewhat translucent and makes it difficult to gauge forms, but I've made several sculptures just fine with it.

Good to know. You have no idea how much it helps having someone explain this to you, sculpting is a bigger and more complicated world than I thought lol. One day you'll have the dubious honour of being credited on the first sculpture I post that is a recognizable form. :D

Haha, well, you are welcome of course, and an honor it would be indeed. :)
