Hearts and Hooves Day OC ponies by MadPonyScientist Hearts and Hooves Day OC ponies by MadPonyScientist
This sculpture is for my very own Valentine. She never wants me to go out of my way to do anything special but after all the ponies I've made it was long overdue that she had her own. Happy Hearts and Hooves Day !!!!!

I just started sculpting today and I'm finding it extremely hard to make everything look smooth no matter how many times I go over it. I mainly have this problem when trying to add the hair or accessories. Any advice?

(Not: I'm using Sculpty.)

The main advice, since you are talking about it mainly happening when you add the hair is to do what I do....make the pony and cook it and add the hair after and cook it again. I do the same thing when i add accessories. Some of my ponies get cooked 5 or 6 times before it's done. Also, learn to drag your fingers lightly over the clay after you have the right shape. That will smooth out the bumps.Don't worry too much about fingerprints because it is nearly impossible to avoid them completely.

What about legs? I ended up doing the head then made the body and attached it. I did the same with each leg as I went along. I have a lot of trouble between the legs to attach them and positioning them.

I actually learned the hard way that you really need a wire armature (frame) to do the legs properly. I make a wire frame in the shape i want the pony and then I will actually start with the rear legs and work my way forward. I attach each piece and drag the clay with my fingers until it is attached and the line where they are joined is no longer visible then I drag my fingers lightly over it again and again to smooth it out.

I thought I'd have to do that. Sadly, I got impatient and just wanted to try it out because I don't have any wire on-hand and still need to buy some that are safe to bake with the sculpture.

Just make sure it is steel wire. Aluminum heats up easily and expands and will crack the clay.
