    Beautiful sculpts, and the 80's terminator looks better than the fake heads they used in the movie. It's going to look great once you get the bionic eye in there. I'm looking forward to seeing how you work out the textures in the clothing. Your work on the T2 is great.

    Thanks, mlavnish!
    a
    Got a few progress shots to show. Obviously the hair and the jacket are still only roughed in, and the endo side of the face still needs some work, but I'm fairly please with the general facial structure. Is it the T1 Arnold?

    And here's a shot I took with different lighting that shows the skin texture up quite well

    Done a bit today and yesterday... fully roughed the hair out, done a bit of refining around the mouth and throat, started texturing the jacket. Still lots to do, but I'm please with the way he's looking up to now.

    Obviously the likeness is dead on. It is really nice work, and the skin looks like skin, not super sculpey with some dots in it. It's great. I have a question about end-use with the SS. Is this too large to cure in the oven? I have seen some work that is clearly too large to go into a conventional oven, and it is painted.. What is the purpose of a sculpt at that point? Are these portfolio pieces? Are they cured in pieces maybe? I'm just full of questions. sorry.. I'm working on some things for bronze casting, and I cannot figure out how an uncured piece is painted, and then.. then what? Anyone?

    Alan this is sick, been meaning to comment.I dont post on this site to much but I love this piece.And that goes with me not a huge fan of the terminator.

    Adriela you probably will run into some major cracking without curing clay.Alot of sculptors use a pizza oven for large pieces.I have to cut some pieces to make stuff fit in my oven.I figure if i get good at cutting and curing pieces ,it will probably make me a better artist even is it may take away from that untouched look.

    This is absolutely T1 Arnold! Everything about it is just perfect! The textures, the likeness... I especially love the battle damage you give your terminators - it seems just more realistic than the movies (maybe due to the fact that they didn't have the CG to make Arnie's jaws to be seen under the torn tissue, at the time). Excellent work!

    Hi Adriela, and thanks for the nice comments This piece just about fits in our oven with all the shelves removed. But for bigger pieces there are a number of solutions, one being a pizza oven as Zuckus77 mentioned. Another solution is to make an oven by creating a box out of plaster board with a hole in the bottom to take a heat gun, the drawback being that it's difficult to montior the temperature with this method, so care would have to be taken that the piece does not burn. Speaking of heat guns, if your sculpture is a means to an end... i.e. to make a mould and cast the finished item, the heat gun can be used to harden the sculpture enough to make a mould from it. Or you could harden it enough to cut the sculpture up and then fully cure it in a standard oven. No one would paint an uncured piece.

    Yeah, the great thing about these pieces is that I can dig into the face rather than put it on the top as they had to in the movies. Thanks for the support

    Alaneye, Thank you! I know supersculpey can even be semi-cured in boiling water, according to the late great doll maker Robert McKinley, but even he wasn't brave enough to try it. And I'm the world's biggest chicken where my artwork is concerned. Thanks for responding with such a detailed reply. I know you are busy.

    Hi Adriela, you are welcome.... I had thought about the boiling method when I was drafting my reply, but it went out of my head. I know people have used it successfully, but personally I wouldn't trust it. By the way, I'm not a professional sculptor, I have no formal training and I work full time in IT support. I just do this in my spare time

    Al
