Figurine WIP/ tutorial part 2 dress and folds by sculptor101 Figurine WIP/ tutorial part 2 dress and folds by sculptor101

Update: 6/12
I made a simple video on Youtube at:
Please let me know if this works better, turn it on highest resolution for better viewing.
Please give me some feedback for improvement. Thanks a lot!

Here comes part 2 for the dress and folds, it's very long photos, sorry I can't find a better way... =_=

Please also refer to part 1 - armature and legs…

Many friends had asked me "How do you make figurines, can you show me the process?" I had therefore made a tutorial that divided in several areas of the figurine while I was working on a self project, a project that wasn't base on commission, actually they were sort of work in progress. You may see a lot of photos taking during sculpting. It's long hours of work that I did beside my work. Please look for yourself and compare the differences of how it was made. I tried taking shoots as many as I can at the "turning points" in angles.

I know you might have a lot of questions, the materials, tools, methods... I would suggest you may look for my other tutorials for commonly asked questions. I don't really know how long this project may take. But I'll keep updated as it goes on. The pictures shown an angel figurine in progress. Enjoy!


Title: It has a title but I'm not going to say it now, please wait until you see the whole scene when nearly finish.

Material were used: Super Sculpey, jumbo paperclips, crazy glue, baby powder.

I'm guessing the torso and legs are baked; do bake the dress at anytime during the molding?  If you do, insert a daft picture of an oven at key point.  ;-)

Great job! I mean both photo and figurine))) Your tutorials are very helpful. For me photo is  more obvious than video.
