    Pitiful

    Here's a laugh for you, the results of my first (and possibly last) attempt at sculpey modelling... It truly is shocking. The oven was too high, and it came out as a piece of modern art.

    Well, I hope this doesn't discourage you from sculpting. Mistakes happen, but I bet you will never forget to double-check the oven temperature again!

    At any rate, you can just call this "After Pompeii" and pretend it was intentional...
    As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.

    Someone else mentioned pompeii. I was of a mind to call it the Buddha of Hiroshima, or 'the elephant man revived from the dead in radiation experiment'.

    By the way, anyone know a the cheepest way of getting hold of larger quantities of this sculpey stuff? I've found it doesn't go very far, hence the last batch wasn't enough to cover the arms.

    LMAO. Sorry mate but the way its presented almost killed me. I scrolled down through all these decent pics and then all of a sudden hit the cremated remains.

    Keep at it though.

    I just pray the same doesn't happen to my first sculpture which should be oven-ready shortly.

    keep at it mate.
    it looked real good for a first piece.
    its best to bake at a lower temperature for longer.
    ive made a few mistakes when bakeing, its all in the learning curve
    hehe

    Hey, realy dont let this discourage you
    I kind alike the look of the bourned piece! the shiny black material looks sort of valuable If it wasn't connected to so much loss of detail I'd say I prefer the burned version
    Maybe you can try todo the burning thing on purpose and make it part of your sculpting style? you could try to capture more abstract forms or more simplified creatures that still read well when overbacked? I'd love to see a crumply burned alien creature

    keep it up!

    by the way, i like it for being a first sculpture (I'm going to try it out by myself once I get some sculpey or chavant in my hands.. poorly enough it's not easily to get here in germany )
    I hop emy first piece looks anything like yours

    If you're fond of blackened, blistered, toxic, stinking monsters, it came out beautifully.
