Exo Sculpt by CadmiumCrab Exo Sculpt by CadmiumCrab
This is one of :iconfireflytwinkletoes:'s OCs, Exo. I made her for a contest.

At first I thought I was really going to dislike getting all those details on there, but in the end I really like the black and white detailing. All the design elements really mesh together well.

She's made of super sculpey over a wire and foil armature, painted with acrylics, and sprayed with acrylic matte sealer. She stands 6 1/2 inches tall.

Thank you for your interest, but commissions are currently closed for the near future. When/if I reopen them I will post a journal about the dates and details.

Have you ever sculpted a pony using sculpy III? And how much clay do you end up using? Looks like that took a lot of clay O_O

I don't use sculpey III, I find it doesn't blend as well as super or sculpey firm. It's also not as sturdy. It takes a good amount of clay, but I build over foil to save clay. A pound of clay can yield between 2-5 ponies depending on complexity, pose, and size.

Ah, I was just curious 'cause all of the clay I have is sculpey III. I'd really like to try and make pony sculptures of my own, but the thing that's really difficult for me is the foil part, like trying to make it the right shape and stuff. And I also wasn't sure like how much clay it takes to make just one pony ^^;

With the foil, the mistake most people make is crumpling it up too fast so it becomes this dense little ball that can't be shaped. Start out slowly crumpling it into a large version of the shape you want, then slowly shrink it down until you have what you want. 

By all means, go for it with the sculpey you have. The type of clay people like best is a matter of personal preference, so it may work for you. I would have at least 3 of the blocks on hand for sculpting a pony.
