Celestia WIP How-To Tutorial Part 4 by Blackout-Comix Celestia WIP How-To Tutorial Part 4 by Blackout-Comix
Today I have the fourth part of my upcoming Celestia sculpt. She is nowhere near done, but she's coming along nicely. Sorry for the delay, but work's been hectic and time for sculpting has been short.

I have been asked repeatedly to make a tutorial and since she's going to be my most involved and complicated sculpture to date, I figured it would be the perfect time to just get everything out. These multi-part WIP submissions should include everything I do when sculpting. I do not know how many parts this will end up being, but I'll keep making them until she's done.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Part 5: [link]

Best wishes.

You say you use fimo for the 80/20 ratio, but does it matter what color? Like, do you use just white or transparent fimo?

The only Fimo I use or will ever use is "Fimo puppen doll clay." There is a picture of it in the Part 1 Tutorial. I never use colored clays since I always paint them later. The natural color of the clay I use is a slight pinkish color. Hope that helps.

obe question, how many times did you baked it?

After looking through your gallery, I see you're using Super Sculpey. Everything I've seen with Super Sculpey, you have to be a bit more careful with rebaking it and thin pieces have a tendency to burn. That's one of the reasons why I love Fimo so much. This clay never burns and as long as you let it cool between bakings, you can let it go for the full bake time and temp without worry. :D

Many many times. I don't keep track. lol. :)

I just let it cool completely between bakings and there is no limit to how many times I can bake it.

I constantly look it over for tiny flaws. Each time I find one, I have to add clay and I always bake it before going to bed for the night, so I can sand the area I added clay to the next day.

Maybe I missed it somewhere, and I apologize if you get this often, but, do you do commissions!? .. I'm totally awestruck by your sculpting talent!! I'm hoping beginning of next year I'll be able to commission WhiteDove as well. ^_^;; hehe. Thanks much!

Thank you that means so much to hear! :D

I am willing to do commissions, but the price varies depending on what you are wanting done. If you are interested, please note me with what you are looking for and I'll be able to shoot you a price. Thank you.
