    The transforming one will be a modified lockdown. Basically he will have elements from the sculpture above.

    ah good, a clay project .now would be the best time for me to ask if sculpey clay can be covered over aluminum foil in a desired shape . or if it needs to be solid and thick cause I can't afford three at one time. Any recommendations you might have for me sir kindly sir.

    What are you trying to do. I'm just asking so I can find out. This is the first time I have used clay, but I can ask my teacher and she will give me an answer.

    Well, I used to be artistic in high school back in 94 but haven't practiced my techniques since three years back from now while I was trying to make a Galvatron statue which didn't turn out too well because I used the preferred clay making it solid, it cracked up in certain areas

    Yes. I've done some polymer clay sculpting, and for figures, I'll always start with a wire armature (to provide stability) and pad the form out with aluminium foil. Then I'll cover the foil in a thinnish layer of clay and cook it for 15 mins or so to provide my base.

    Two main reasons this is beneficial - firstly, the metal foil inside doubles as an element of sorts - naturally metal conducts heat more efficiently than the clay, so you've essentially got the clay being cooked from the inside as well as outside. Secondly, foil is a lot cheaper than polymer clay - so any volume you make up with foil is clay saved for later.
    Once you give the clay that first firing and let it cool, it's plenty solid enough to continue working on.

    That's one thing a lot of people don't realise about polymer clays - you can actually fire them as many times as you like. Usually the pack recommends cooking for about half an hour, but you can put it in for 15-20 minute bursts quite happily, in order to harden individual stages so you don't damage work you've done while you're sculpting another area. When you've finished, you can put it in for that final half-hour blast.


    Pretty cool piece of sculpting there, Cyb. Do you plan on doing more of this kind of thing?

    I'm thinking about it, but I've got to finish this first and then I have to do a painting that is like 2 weeks over due. So I'm a little busy.
