    And now for something completely different...

    Well maybe not entirely different. Impressed by the work of Black Frog and Smellybug here are my first attempts in super sculpey.




    These are humourous character studies based on stereotypical 1950's types.

    Great, fun stuff! I really like the effect you achieved with the old woman, especially her hair.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Nice sculpts. The male looks like something Pixar would have done to figure out Mr. Incredible concept.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    A few people have made a Pixar connection, I quess it's a similar period.

    My initial idea was to draw some character sketches for a comic idea sending-up the fifties/sixities British comic book hero Dan Dare. After struggling for a while with pencil and paper I thought they'd make a good subject for sculpey.
    I don't know whether I will ever finish the pitch but here is Colonel Dashiel 'Dash ' Douglas (Rtd), first gentleman of space, pipe smoker of the year 1950 and first class scoundrel!

    All of these heads are about 4 0r 5 inches tall.
    Here's the rest of them, the two in the foreground are still unfinished.



    I was wondering does anyone else find this stuff impossible to keep clean?

    For my next piece I'm going to try the grey, I'll post the work as I progress.

    Thanks for the kind words, these have been fun to work on.
    I must admit that I am still totally unresolved on how to do hair. On each one I've done it's a bit different. I'm not sure whether indiviual strands or just blocking out a general shape is the best approach.
    Andy Bergholtz does fantastic precise hair but I don't think I have the patience for that:

    Another problem I have had with the beige sculpey is photographing it. These have just been smoothed with my fingers rather than with an alcohol but they still appear grainy in the photos! I think it might be it's translucent quality.
