new sculpts

Well here’s a peek at Penny of “Inspector Gadget” (1/6 scale) which is part of the “sneaker” series I’m making. This fig is sculpted using Super Sculpey.

“sneaker” series includes Sally Acorn and Velma Dinkley

sometimes using primer or base paint on a figure  (depending on the material)
is good for spotting defects in sanded areas.

Super Sculpey is pretty good when it comes to producing organic features e.g head sculpts and  textured elements e.g clothing but if your model has lots of streamed lines such as lengths of hair fabric or anything that has flowing or linear features I use automotive putty. Automotive putty produces  a surface more even when sanded  its less brittle at edges  (and is even slightly flexible,  good for thin areas or those areas of “flow” I mentioned. This particular one I made before I discovered the joys of putty.

“Agatha ” is here too 🙂
