slight issue with the white balance on my camera - makes white things tinged with yellow.  Will be fixed for next time :3

Preemptive question answering!
They are supported with magic sculpt - air drying epoxy clay that is very strong and 14 gauge (i think) steel wire.  They are very sturdy!

Please read this before commenting :3  thx!

For other questions please see my journal for faq, demo videos, and commission status!

How in the world do you get these so smooth? My super sculpey sculptures always look lumpy!
Reply
:iconviistar:
VIIStar Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014
it's a whole process, from the texture of the clay, the tools, the finishing layers, and the paint ^u^ 
smooth at EVERY STEP!!

Screamer21 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hmmm, I'll have to try that. I do try to smooth everything as I go, but it still always has slight lumps in it. Yours are so smooth, they look like the plastic figures in the store!

Extremely cute, and beautifully done! The ponies themselves are perfect of course, and though it may seem like a silly or inconsequential comment I really do love the look of that cloud.

Every time I see your sculptures, I ask myself "Won't it break when touched?" I know there is a wire inside, but it looks so... fragile =P
