I made a simple video on Youtube at: youtu.be/mP-Lj5bahU4
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.

Final sculpture scene:
looking forward to seeing what you are making. Personally, I think the current piece in the tutorial, is an Angel taking some-one to Heaven!! The clue might be in the name of your Studio!! lol.
atb buddy-- tim
It may take months to finish. Please stay tuned!
How did you make the dress 'float' around the ankle bit, the clay seems thin, wouldn't it not just colapse? Because gravity and things?
The dress looks really nice. It's so soft and (I don't know if I use this word right but I hope you understand anyway ^^) floating.
I'm looking forward to more pictures of this scene : )
And by the way: how do you make it that the sculpey doesn't collapse?? When I would make such a dress sooner or later the sculpey would lay on the leg >.>
I tried making it like silk fabric which is soft and you mentioned and it sudden blows by the wind. She is floating above the ground. I'll keep updated as it goes on.
The clay... "I discuss with him a lot everyday". So I know pretty much what it is capable of in shapes. it's ok to lay it on the legs when you are sculpting, you would only need to left it up right before baking. Or at lease when the exterior is ok, bake first, come bake fix the inner areas of shirt after baked. ^^
