Very well done. You've certainly captured his expression. :D
Where do you get your bases from?

thanks ^^
the bases come from your run of the mill craft store like beverlies or micheals in the unfinished wood aisle.

This. This is brilliant XDD I'm sorry I have so many questions ;-; But, how did you get it mounted into the base? One artist book I read said about using U-Nails to nail the armature to the base, but in every photo she had not a single armature nailed into the base, which left me confused... and it doesn't look like you U-Nail them in, so how do you mount them?

nothing I make is large enough for U-nails, I will screw mount a very large sculpt, but these days i just have the armature wire go through the cork sculpting base - [link]

Wait...you can bake cork in the oven? O_o Whoa. How well does the sculpey stick to the cork? And you can screw into wooden bases without splitting the wood? Or do you still use cork bases for large sculptures? It seems like the sculpture would tip over if that was the case...

no, I don't put any heat on the corks. the sculpt is removed from the cork and put in a pot, hung over water and steamed.

I have NO idea how much heat a cork can take and do not recommend baking them... O_O

I stick wires into the cork and it holds securley, though i've only done about 7-8" with a 6" round cork. If you need a wooden base that's larger, I recommend a round base so you can turn it in all directions.

The base should always be large enough so the sculpt doesn't tip over.
