Sculpt, then bake

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Creature Maquette -

If the body is big, I crunch up alu­minium foil to fill the cen­tral void, so the poly­mer clay is no more than half an inch thick. I use glass beads for eyes, or some­times glass an­i­mal eyes from a taxi­dermy sup­plier. I sculpt only the part of the an­i­mal above the mud, and the cracked-mud tex­ture around it. I harden the sculpt by cur­ing it in the oven.

Baked in oven at 275 de­grees for 15 min­utes to cure Thin layer of Sculpey over ply­wood base
