    The Birth of Pegaso - My first creation in Sculpey

    Hi,

    It is the first time that I present my work in this forum. I am a Spanish girl who is beginning to work in Super Sculpey, Sculpey III and Fimo. Until this work I only used epoxi putty. I do not write too much well in English, but I will try to explain itself as well as possible.
    The figure that I am doing is one of the pieces that will form diorama called “The Birth of Pegaso”. The first figure that I am creating is Pegaso. I like the evolution that it has had in these two weeks, and although at the moment it is very advanced, would be very useful for me that you gave advice me not to commit the same failures in the next creation with this type of putty.
    OK, here is my skeleton of wire for the Pegaso figure here, taking the learned lessons from Smellybug. My objective is that Pegaso arises from the blood of Medusa that is in an ample puddle in the ground.

    I put two images more and I will add some more tomorrow. In order to make the base of the body I have used a 75% of Super Sculpey and a 25% of white Sculpey III . I have given form to the silhouette to fill up the body without losing the proportions.

    In these images I have stuffed the body and giving it some form. Now I think that I should have put more quantity of Propoxy plummers putty in the base, but I continued modeling in spite of it.

    The following images show the work on the eyes, the lips, the ears, and more details. The last two images are the most current, although I have already begun the work of the manes and the wings. I will try to publish the new images tomorrow.

    I am looking for the way of making the wings, I hope not to take too much in finishing them but I still continue fighting with the structure.

    Really good work, I love the level of detail. Can't wait to see the final diorama. I am not much of a sculpter, but the wings could prove hard to put on to that model. Good work, keep it up!

    Adding wings

    Wow, this is awesome! Beautiful work! Adding wings is going to be a pain in the butt though. Did you bake the first layer of clay? If you did, you can drill holes into it to anchor your wing armature. If I were you, I'd do two small holes for each wing. Then your wing armature can have two prongs, kind of like an electrical plug, so that the wing won't swivel no matter where the weight is.
    If you didn't bake it, you're going to have to remove a lot of clay to tie into your original armature.
    Good luck!

    thanks to all for the comments, you encourage me to continue with the work, it is the most difficult figure that I have made up to now and when I have to make to Perseo and the decapitated Medusa, I think that I will need Red Bull injections. Although these days I have been busy with a thousand things, I have been able to make three intents in the creation of the wings, and I have finally been able to begin similar something what I wanted to get.

    I don't know if when I work it I will get the results that I hope and at the moment it is not convinces me too much, but I didn't find better way to give it solidity. I have requested Super Sculpey Firm and I have not still received it so I began the work with Super Sculpey, but I think that I will find difficult to model the wings. I still have to give detail to each feather!!

    I began the work of the manes yesterday, I have introduced wire to make the structure that allows to maintain the form. I wanted that the manes will be shown shaken by the wind provoked by the wings, because Pegaso tries to rise.

    To make the form of the wings I have worked with aluminum sheets, metallic mesh and wire. I don't know how it will react in the oven, I will go away while the wings are baked.

    I based the creation on swan wings and real eagle wings, because the swan has dense wings to be able to take off with his heavy body and the real eagle has a more agile flight that swan flight.

    madmonster: I think that it is a good idea to conclude the base of the wings with two wire ends, although I only placed one, but I will add a second wire with Propoxy plummers putty.

    madmonster & Brookesy: I will harden the piece of the horse before placing the wings, I would only like to have the value to make it because if it is broken in the oven I will suffer a heart attack. It is the first time that I put putty Sculpey in the oven...

    Aseyngel: It is not the first horse that I have created... I have already modeled many horses but only in epoxi. Sculpey is new for me. I like it!. I have not still modeled human complete figures and it will be an entire challenge for me to create diorama's figures. I hope they look human at least, if it is not I would mash the whole mythological legend and I would have to create my own version.

    The mane (is that the word for horse-head-hair?) is fantastisk.
    How do you manage to get the sculpey to float like that?
    What kind of support do you use for the wings?
    With your degree of skill I would guess the human body should be within reach. By all means - do your own legends ;-)

    Aseyngel: I still have to begin the other wing and I will photograph step-by-step the structure creation. It is not very good but it has been the structure that has convinced me with regard to the rest of tests that I have been making. I will also photograph the form of modeling the manes, I don't still know if they will be too fragile... the oven will show it to me.

    I don't know if I will be able to make the human figures at the same detail level that the horse. Anyway, I will work in them the time that is necessary so that they have the best aspect that I can achieve. I hope not to create creatures very different to the humans, if the face of Perseo doesn't convince me I will put him a complete helmet...

    Barbelith200ad: I thought of making it when I began the figure, but I am not expert making molds and I don't know if I will dare, I fear to destroy the figure. If finally I decide to make it I should create the mold before coupling the wings.

    ...Sorry for my bad writing in English :-(

    Its probably a good thing not to mould it as it is,i could see a problem moulding the mane,it would be very difficult to mould.

    I am really excited to see the finished product.. the image of pegasus emerging from a puddle of blood is really fascinating. I wonder how you are going to achieve that effect (will pegaso be stained with blood, like the ground it is rising from, or pure white amidst the gore?)..
    Please keep us posted!

    The wing look fantastic. And the mane is just out there. Did you use wire for each cluster of hair? Looking forward to see a more detailed progression photos of the next wing. I'm very interrested in seing how you build them up.

    The anatomy of horse and wing is IMPRESSIVE.
    Your references for both are exelent.If this is your first
    sculpey try I cannot imagine what the future will bring.
    Before that ,did you only use epoxi?What else?And for how long?
    Humans are not a problem after this!
    And yes how did you do the mane?

    Psypomp: I had thought that Pegaso was spotted of blood for the contact area with the puddle of blood so it has retired of the body as he has emerged. Pegaso will be white (with dark eyes) or albino (with blue or gray eyes) coat. Now I am looking for effects for the earth base, and I have thought to add a piece of column of some greek knocked down temple, because the scene is developed in the hyperborean lands where it was sent to the exiled gods (because it was considered as a lost area) and I think that it will be an important object to set the scene.

    Dozeren: Yes, I have added a wire in each group of hair. I am making a session of pictures to show clearly how the work. I will detail each feather, I will work hours and I will have headaches but I think that the wings will have a more realistic aspect.

    Rvbhal: The work with epoxy putty is different, epoxy putty allows that you work it well only the first 40 seconds since you carry out the mixture of the two components, so the work takes a lot of time, it is necessary to work small areas and to allow to dry off the putty to be able to continue working, what can take from 30 to 40 minutes, or to accelerate the process with hot air... once it is dry you cannot make much more, you can sand, if you see errors you can desolate but you cannot modify because the putty epoxy is too hard to work it with easiness. It has advantages depending on the figure and scale, in very small scales I prefer to use epoxy putty although it is also very useful to give different effects in surfaces. I have worked with epoxi during years, I think that I began when I was 12 years old, because it was the material easier of getting in the stores of art of my city and I have gotten used to work quick and to get good details for not having to desolate or to sand the hard epoxi surface.

    Tomorrow I leave to the coast until September, I will try to combine the surf with the putty, I won't have internet so I won't be able to enter in the forum until I return. I wait that you advance a lot in your works, I am wanting to see the results. I expose the last picture here with the session of pictures corresponding to the form in that I made the manes, the feathers and the last images after working the manes. When I return I will take the figure to the oven and I will cross the fingers, while I will finish the wings.

    A hug to all, and don't stop to sculpt!!!!

    i am so mad i haven't had access to a computer for a few days...this is brilliant work Mariahc!!!! i love the flow of this piece, the mane the wings excellent. i can't find fault with any of the outstanding work you've put in so far! please don't doubt your skill...with the obvious amount of detail and study you put into the horse's anatomy i know your human work will be as equally impressive! keep up the good work!

    Thank You Maddmaestro and Fruitdot! I already concluded the right wing with detail of the fiber of each feather and now I will begin the left wing. I will wait until September to put everything in the oven because today I have only returned to my city for some hours and I don't have enough time to bake anything. When I return in a definitive way in September, I will expose the pictures of the whole work carried out in these days, and I will request help to bake appropriately, because I would not like to burn everything for my inexperience. I am wanting to do your works with more time.

    A hug!
