is there a special type of wire to use or no just any old wire (sorry if this is a stupid question)

It isn't a stupid question at all. You want to use steel. Not copper or aluminum because they expand when heated and can cause cracks. My craft store is horrible and doesn't stock crafting wire but the do have floral wire and you can get a large spool very cheaply. The problem with floral wire is that is is usually green. It is also thin so you have to double the strands and twist them to make them strong and this sometimes causes the green paint to flake off and get on the clay. If you are painting after then it is no problem but i use colored clay so it can be a hassle. I have learned to wipe the strands after I twist them to remove any loos paint ant it usually works fine.

Oh. This explains why the sculpture I was making today cracked. I'm going to try using steel.

Btw, I LOVE how you make movement in your sculptures. They look so natural. I think I love you :heart:

Awe...that is so sweet of you :heart: ...I was looking at your gallery and you make some very nice human form sculptures. I have been wanting to try human form myself and have done a little of it but I can't find the right model so I stick with ponies. Yeah, it took me awhile to learn that about the wire. I used the same wire for a long time and then ran out. I used some other wire I had lying around and 3 sculptures in a row cracked before i realized it was because of the wire, which was aluminum. What were you making when it cracked?

MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Thank you. It's polymer clay over a wire frame.

Thanks...whatg do you think of the eye style? Which is better...painted or sculpted?
Reply
:iconcptconfusion:
CptConfusion Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
I think both are good. However I would have to say I think sculpted is a bit better. I feel it gives a bit more realism to their eyes expression and it pops out more.
Reply
:iconmadponyscientist:
MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Yeah, I agree. This was my first attempt so I will get better at it. Sorry I didn't try it on yours so you could have this style too!

Thanks, and if it's any consolation, she looks better in real life. My camera sucks!

ooooh, this one is rather different, but in a good way of course :)

I like the ears and tail done like that, and the fluffy tuffy hooves are adorable ^.^

:iconmadponyscientist:
MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Thanks. I just felt it was time to try the sculpted eyes I think they look pretty good and makes it seem more lifelike.
Reply
:icongshgunner:
GSHgunner Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
yeah the eyes look good for your first time :)

will they continue to be like that now, or will you like offer ppl that option beforehand?

Thanks! It took me longer to sculpt them than painting them, but other than the fact that this one has mule ears and tail, I think this is my most "lifelike" piece I have done. I don't know if it's because of the pose or just because of the eyes but it just seems more animated. I think I might try more in this style soon. What do you think?
