Cyber's Sculpey Maquette tute by cybernetichero Cyber's Sculpey Maquette tute by cybernetichero
Here's the first of the tutorials I promised. Most of the things in this tute are self taught so it may be a bit idiosyncratic but..... well, there it is.

I recommend that you download and then zoom in because the DA large view is still too small for the text to be legible....... big file.

How much did you use for making this?

I seem to remember only using about half of a standard 1 pound brick. Most of the mass is taken up with foil with just a skin of sculpey over the top about as deep as the details you are going to put into it :D

Fantastic! By coincidence, I need to make a sauropod maquette for a painting. I'm really intimidated by this project and your tutorial is perfect!

first of all it's in the tute and second I already recommended downloading and then using your picture viewer (windows or whatever) to zoom in.

I wouldn't use wood but a glass bottle is excellent if you can get one of the right shape. Plastic is fine and, I suppose a piece of metal tubing would do but clean it up.

Is it cold, maybe you need to sit on it or something (seriously) to warm it up without cooking it.

A fine brachiosaur, be certain of that. But what's with this gobble pouch handing from his chin? Is that where he keeps his jelly beans or is it where he keeps pebbles to help him grind up food?

Well, I thought that neck would make a great flagpole so I put a pennant at the top :giggle:
