    Smellybug, your first tutorial was really inspiring and its awsome to see that your doing another one.
    I have a question for either you or anyone who knows something about this, and that is: How crutial is it to use alluminum wire when making the armature. I've tryed everywhere from a local metals store to home depot or arts stores and can't seem to find any. Do you use aluminum simply because its easy to work with or is it important later on in, say, the fireing process?
    Are there other alternatives you could suggest?
    Thanks

    Oh hey, the mobile armature, something you didn't use in the other tutorial.
    Question:
    when you turned it over, what part were you grabbing to turn it?

    Gao: Not using mixed sculpey here...just using the new gray firmer sculpey. Good stuff!

    Dex; Awesome thankyou!

    Dan: I just grab the sculpture and turn until it's in the detail stage, just use pliers or vice grips on the pipe otherwise, y'know?

    tsunami: If you image google the word "muscles", you'll get more that you need. Or buy a book. Or a bodybuilding mag. Or go to www.3d.sk and look around.

    cmr: you can use whatever, it's just that Aluminum wire is easy to bend, cut etc, and is easy to come by. Get it at most ceramics stores, or Dick Blick art supplies. Google armature wire, you should find something. Also I use it because it doesn't corrode with the clay. I tried coat hanger wire when I was a kid, but that cheap tin or whatever metal they make the stuff out of would start leaching crud all over after a few days. Whatever you use, make sure it's stainless.

    more updates coming....

    I have a quick question Smellybug.

    What do you recommend to smooth the sculpey? You mention "turpernoid" and I hear lighter fluid, in your opinion which one is the Best?

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience.

    I always use Sculpey Diluent, it's really good for smoothing out a Sculpey sculpt
    or softening the edges of some details.

    On the subject of wires, I grabbed electrical wire from an auto store that has insulation around it, do you think it'll melt off if I bake the sculpt?

    that looks like epoxy putty around the base of the hood. Did you peel back sculpey to bond wire to wire, or is it putty bonding wire to sculpey, or what?

    Amazing tutorial Petey.I like this concept even more than your last one.
    What happened to the book you were planning ?
    I emailed to get on your waiting list but got the email sent back.
    when will this DVD be ready?

    thanx.

    It's better to be remembered as the sand in the gears and not as the oil.

    Much love Peter! I'm a little suprised you didn't bulk it up with foil... Is there any reason for that ?
