ermm juz wondering if you got all of the sculpturing done in a day...Won't the clay dry up?? Or does it has to be baked to harden it? but still how did you manage to keep the clay moist? adding thinner, water?(btw great sculpturing)
klnw_84, he isn't using regular clay, it's a polymer compound called Super Sculpey, which needs to be baked to harden. It will dry out in a few months on it's own, but even then you can still work it with tools, it just gets a bit crumbly.
cool work I like your style creepy!
after starting my own, i have a few q's for you
1. when you are first blocking him in, is he hollow? or solid? or built up around the frame?
2. When you finish up, what do you do with the copper pipe? I mean, do you leave it in there? cut it off and fill?
This is awesome stuuf man...!
when are you gonna finish it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I second all of Manslaughter's sentiments. Can't friggin' wait for the next part!
thanks for coming back!!!!
Id been waiting for this moment to come for such a long time...

yey ur back! really loving your work thanks for the amazing tutorials, one thing, i emailed to sign up for ur mailing list but it got sent back? u'll have to let us know when the dvd/book is planned.cheers
Great its getting updated again
I couldnt help noticing tho, you use quite hefty "lumps" of sculpey when your doing your sculps, dont you have a real problem with cracking during the bake/cooling period?
or am i missing something ?

but he was a muffin...!'
woe this is very cool i like the tecnique you are using.
Peter ,What happened to your book/video you were working on?
I tried to get on the mailing list but the email would get returned.
It's better to be remembered as the sand in the gears and not as the oil.
Hey Pete I’ve been thinking about working with sculpy again and looking at your tuts pushed me over the edge. I’m going shopping tomorrow and want to know what the most needed tools I should probably get are? I’ve moved since I last sculpted and am starting from scratch what are these materials gunna set me back and what can I cheap out on?
Captain, in his other tutorial, he talks about tools and has pictures of what he uses.
Yeah But Id Like To Know What Guages Of Wire I Should Get,and How Much Matirials Are Gunna Cost Like Turpintine & Wire Mesh?
Wow - Such an honor to witness another sculpt by you Peter.
You're truly at the top of your game!
Can you give me an approximate time it takes to finish one of these?
Do you impose a deadline on yourself, Does the studio you work for?
Or do you just wing it?
Thank you for doing this! Will you paint it as well? (sorry if that question have been asked).
The creature has a very strong resemblance to a creature in the third season of Farscape.
Found a pic:
Well It Just Goes To Show Great Minds Think Alike.

Wow, dude! Can't wait to see the end result. ^_^
