Handmade: Braixen Sculpture by vitav Handmade: Braixen Sculpture by vitav
I've been making this for quite a while. I've got a lot of work to do and my job just takes too much time so I had to spend about an hour a day for around two weeks.

I played Pokemon X in my free time and my love for Braixen grew so much, so I decided to make a sculpture of her. Guess I'm becoming a little too obsessed about fox-type characters like Tails and Braixen ^^ I've really put every single warm feeling in this work and I like the way Braixen turned out to be ^^ Too bad she looks not as cute as she is on the photos, she's  much cuter in reality.

I used Sculpey III, tin foil and copper wires, acrylics and finishing varnish =)

These are real cool..  : )
What do you mean by finishing varnish?  Is it like spray fixative, or wood varnish, or resin?

I used special varnish made especially for polymer clay figurines named Sonnet. I just used a brush to lay it on. Now, however, I use spray varnish.

And also, if I'm working on it, leave it, and come back to it, it becomes brittle and breaks if I accidentally apply too much pressure. is there anything to help with that as well?

Well, this clay is one of the many others that need painting even if you get the white one. I always paint it with white acrylic paint after I bake the scuplture. I really like it because it remains a little flexible but still very firm after baking so it's hard to break some tiny details even if they look fragile.
As for leaving the sculpture for a while - I found this problem too, but I always bake my sculptures several times. I always bake my sculpter when I reach a certain point in my creation. For example - make the feet, bake 'em, smooth 'em and get on to the next part of the body. This way it's much easier to make some limbs stay firm when they are perfected and leave it for a while if you need a rest.

So there really is no way to keep it soft white? Darn.

Not for me at least. If you take too long to smooth things out when the clay isn't yet baked - it's got to get a little grey'ish.

I use Sculpey III and I personally find it hard to use. I keep getting like debris in it like tiny fibers from my hands, even when I wash my hands, and when I bake it it doesn't stay white, which hasn't been a problem since I've been painting what I make, but I'm making angel wings that I want to stay a nice soft white so I don't have to paint over it. Any suggestions...?
