    So… sanding.

    First thing I would suggest is to do wet sanding, especially for the courser grades of sandpaper. Sanding sponges seem to work the best. You just get a pan or dish with water (one you...

    Representative sculpture simply means "realistic" works. Works that aren't abstract. They're intended to represent an actual object, or something that looks like a real object (e.g. mythological...

    You resurrected a thread from 2005... you kind of have to expect that some of the images are no longer going to be available with a post that old.

    Yep, you sure can. You can just add more clay to the baked clay, if it doesn't stick well, put a thin layer of vaseline on the baked clay and try again. Multiple bakings is a very common practice,...

    Yeah, you can use your oven. It's not a bad idea to clean your oven after you bake, which should eliminate any residue, but I"m sure there are many people who don't do that. Do not put the clay...

    Do they have other works? Heh, you seriously don't know the Shiffletts? They are pretty far up in the pantheon of modern sculpting gods. Check out their web site at http://shiflettbrothers.com/...

    Fixing cracks is tough. If they go all the way through, I'll often cut out a whole section - say 1/4" and resculpt it. It seems to create a more stable seam then just trying to "glue" the crack with...

    This is a really great first sculpt. It shows a much better grasp of anatomy than most first sculpts!

    200°F is not high enough to ensure a permanent piece. Although I'm an advocate of the...

    It could be any number of things.

    The thicker the sculpey is, the more likely it is to crack. Cracking can also happen if water is trapped in the sculpey, because at 212°F, the water turns to...

    You don't wedge Sculpey, but you do need to do something sort of equivalent - you need to condition it. Most people use a pasta machine (don't ever use that same machine for making pasta though) to...

    You're out of luck. Chavant is an oil clay, and like wax, cannot be made permanent. You have to make a mold of it if you want it permanent.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds SS Firm crumbly. Some people rave over it, but it takes a lot of conditioning to get it useable, much more than with regular SS mixed with Fimo or Sculpey III.

    Cernit is primarily a doll-maker's clay. It's very soft, and even the warmth of your hand can make it almost too soft to work with. It cures very hard, and they offer a wide range of flesh-tones.
