First time with clay



Emerald Dragon
11.5" long x 4.5" wide x 5" tall
Polymer clay with acrylic paint

This is the first time I've ever worked with polymer clay. I used Sculpey 3, and found it nearly too soft to work with. That said, I'm pretty pleased with my results and learned an awful lot in the process.

You did a good job on him and the colors are beautiful. There are two threads in the sculpture forum here at Wet Canvas that show sculpted dragon you might enjoy seeing.

Re: First time with clay

Nice job! I like Super Sculpey - it has more "body" and strength to it than the other Sculpey products I've tried. You might find you like the feel of that better.

That's a beautiful paint job! I love the varied colors on the scales.

Keep up the good work! Thanks for sharing!

Wink Re: First time with clay

Wow! Very impressive! And I love the colors.

I recently attended a polymer clay workshop and made my first
polymer clay creations, an embellished drawer pull that everyone
made using their own cane designs, and covers for a couple of
my clay tools. They didn't come out anywhere near so profes-
sional looking. I was going to post them, but since this is my
first post here, I'm not allowed to post images yet.

As soon as my workshop instructor gets back from vacation
and has another workshop, I'm ready for another session! I
am really looking forward to making some cool looking beads
and who knows what else with polymer clay.

Once again, that is a mighty fine looking piece and you should
be very proud!

Regards,

Sonyaa

Re: First time with clay

Lynda,

Thanks for the welcome. Now that I've done enough posts,
I can include my whole three items that I've made with polymer
clay so far But I've got my own clay on order so there
should be more to come soon







Take care,

Sonyaa

Re: First time with clay

Actually, I have gotten better at the technique. Here is the
latest set of tools I covered . . . same general colors but much
better looking :-)

Re: First time with clay

Nice! Does having the handles covered make them easier to hold? I never thought about covering the handles of my tools in polymer clay. Could be a fun project, especially if it makes them more comfortable to use.

The tools aren't easier to use because they are covered
but they are nicer to use since they are prettier!

Re: First time with clay

Very nice job on the tools Sonyaa. I am new to Wetcanvas and just starting to read posts. I'm sure by now you have improved your tecnique immensely. I'd love to see more. I started doing primative sculptures back in the 1990s and have been away from it for at least 15 years now. Reading these posts makes me want to get started again!

Smile Re: First time with clay



Hi again,

I can't say this is my first sculpture but its one of the few I had a picture of to show. I love using polymer clay products since I am able to use armatures to create the sculpture without worrying that the clay would shrink or crack. I started sculpting back in the late 1980's when I was inspired by a local Louisiana artist by the name of Lorraine Gendron who made figures out of mud from the banks of the Missisippi River. Since I had no experience in sculpture or knowlege of or access to a kiln, I was happy to discover a product called Sculpey which allowed me to create pieces I could bake in the oven. I am self taught and mostly make primative figures based on daily activities or characters from life here in the New Orleans area like flambeau carriers and other Mardi Gras types. I haven't done much in the past 15 years but I'm inspired to try again. Hope you like it.
