And this one's lovely, too. And it's so nice to see Twilight being depicted as actually enjoying a book, as opposed to learning and studying and pressuring herself -- I think this is much more "her". :)

Do you bake these and then paint them? Because the look REALLY good. Could you maybe critique either [link] or[link]? I'm just starting to paint my clay.

Okay, so for starters, I no longer paint the bodies, just the eyes and cutie marks. I use colored clay. I suggest that you make the transition to colored clay as well...you will love it. I used to paint the bodies but it took forever to get them looking smooth. As I am sure you know, paint tends to clump unlest you water it down and wait long periods in between coats. I can get a pretty smooth coat if I am pationt but it will never be as smooth as the colored clays and the colors are much more vibrant on the colored clays as well. I looked at you whales and they are cute. The paint looks pretty good to me but it is a little hard to tell with the photos. I would suggest the colored clay as soon as you are able. They make tons of different colors and you can mix the colors as well!

I did notice that painting them was a little hard, but I only painted one. I probably won't be painting more though because I'm hoping to get more clay soon. Thanks for the advice!

Yay! More Twilight reading! Its really lovely the polish you gave on the rock~ Lovely as always ^^

coincidentally, I've been working on a particular Reading Twilight, myself~ Its been one I've had in my mind for months!

MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
Yeah, the rock seemed like a good choice again. The person wanted the 2 ponies sitting side by side reading but the pose didn't really tie the 2 ponies together so I thought of this. I read one of your comments where you talked about the Twilight you have had on your mind. Can't wait to see it. Your new sculpt on the cloud base is really nice but you old Twilight is still my favorite!

OMG your paint job is so smooth...what paints do you use?
Reply
:iconmadponyscientist:
MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012
Well. the bodies are mostly colored clay. The eyes, cutie marks and the green hooves on this one are acrylics which could be smoother if i watered them down more.

:iconsugar-bolt:
Sugar-Bolt Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
AH! so watered down paint is definetly smoother?
Reply
:iconmadponyscientist:
MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
MUCH, MUCH smoother. Always keep your paints thinned with water. The problem is that is takes a bit longer to dry and if it isn't dry enough then it will clump. This will happen if it isn't dry enough between coats whether it is watered or not. So if you really need to paint, thin it with water and give it plenty of time to dry between coats and then as soon as you are able, switch to colored clay :)

I have been having trouble with that actually. Alot of my paints clump, but thicker layers cover more, leaving less of the actual clay underneathe and les streaks, but then again, there are parts where the clay gets a bumpy texture. I will try more thin layers, I just have to learn some patience. Thanks alot! Also, what kind of clay do you use? It kind of looks like a porcelien type clay

:iconmadponyscientist:
MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
Don't, i repeat, DON'T learn patience. It isn't worth it. Just change to colored clay as soon as you can. I use polymer clay as you have on yours, but I use colored. I started out with Super Sculpey and it took as long to paint as it did to sculpt it and no matter how hard i tried, the paint was never perfectly smooth and on top of that, the colors were nowhere near as bright and bold. I prefer Fimo Accents or Premo which are just different brands of polymers clay. I do use Scullpey III colored clay but I don't like it because it is usually very soft. Switch to them and only use acryllic gloss for the eyes and cutie marks and you will be MUCH happier!

thanks for your help! I am starting off making clay charms, and I am still figuring out my style and how I work best. My issue right now, besides the paints, is that I don't know how to sculpt some parts of the bodies without pinching another part, so to hold it, but i end up smooshing it. So I opted for baking the charm in layers, so I can hold a hardened clay part, and sculpt on another detail, so to kep the shape. Thing is, if I use colored clays, the color usually burns a bit. It never scorches, but it does darken, hence why I cover it with paint, which adds a clumping problem

MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
They do darken a little so I have gotten used to mixing the colors to get it a little lighter than what i am looking for and most of the time the color is pretty good in the end. I also cook it at a lower temp than it suggests. I had a piece in 2 days ago and of course, it recommends 15 minutes....well, I started watching a movie and forgot about it. About 2 and a half hours later i remembered and thought it might be ruined but it was perfectly fine! I cook mine a 225 instead of 25o. I was reading a journal from another sculptor that was a MASTER sculptor with polymer clay making insanely detailed pieces and he cooks his at 200!!!
