Easy way to practice sculpting (SCULPTRIS)

I was basically minding my own business. When all of a sudden I had an idea. I was thinking and thinking about Photoshop. Now! everyone most likely have heard of Photoshop by now. I concluded.. Well! there has to be a less messy way in which i can use my computer to help me with my sculpting, and sure enough I found a program called Sculptris. Sculptris allows for minimum use of menu button and is straight forward. If you a have a chance, give this product a chance is really wonderful I love it.
You can go to  http://www.pixologic.com/sculptris/ to give this software a chance (Remember is totally free)

The grasping hand

Have you ever wonder why is it that babies are  almost always sculpt with a grasping grip. Well according to Darwin's evolution theory our closest ancestors are monkeys. Can you imagine that Monkeys!
In the bellow pictures you are going to see monkeys grasping their mothers fur. Even though a human baby's grasp is not as strong as a baby monkey's or simian, the reflex suggest that this instinct is still present. Opening gently a  newborns (infant) hands they will grasp their tiny hands around yours.
The Baby Grasping reflex start to disappear by about the 2nd month of life, this is due mainly because by the 2nd month a baby's brain is rapidly developing to become more of a human (more independent) :-).

Fixing broken polymer clay sculpts

It is really easy to fix a polymer clay sculpt.

What you really need to fix your sculpture is fresh Polymer clay (same color of the sculpt you are going to be fixing) Mineral spirits for easy cleanup, a kitchen knife (to clean up excess polymer clay upon adding), and a oven.

1. Clean your hands with dish washing soap really good. This will clean any dirt from your hands.

2. Apply polymer clay to the broken area of you sculpture and put together the broken pieces as if you where gluing them.

3. With the knife make sure that any fresh polymer clay sticking out is smoothed out from the broken area you are trying to fix.

4. With the mineral spirits and a brush or if you do not have a brush you can use some other form of tool to finish wiping your sculpture to get ready for a quick 10-15 minute baking.

5. After wiping off any excess clay. preheat your oven at 275 degrees Fahrenheit. After preheating your oven put your sculpture in on a damp paper towel to avoid the sculpture from burning in the bottom. Make sure you check your sculpture every 5 minutes to avoid any burning damage to it.  When all of this is done turn off the oven and let the sculpture cool down inside the oven to prevent any cracks.

Head armature from foil

As requested.



Basically what you are going to do Is, make sure that the foil is tight. This applies for bigger babies as well.

With a tool smooth out the foil. Remember to clean your tool with an old piece of clay, because the foil is going to leave residues from the aluminum.

After you have smooth it out make sure to put one last sheet to make sure you avoid as much air holes as possible when you are adding your clay.

Baby Expression lines Smile

I have come to notice that we all have expression lines. Whether babies are frowning, smiling excited, these lines are important to sculptors like me. It shows and let us know the way a baby face is going to come out when we finish sculpting.
This cute baby poster from allposters.com is showing a baby with a slanted smile. Notice the expression lines around his chin, mouth and nose. But lets not forget that a smile also has significance when the muscles of the cheek flexes upward, and also the eyes, notice how they squint a little. A smile can go a long way, from a simple friendship to a life of happiness.

Living Doll | My Fake Baby | Channel 4



This is interesting, to have people find this weird but at the same time interesting. Ladies and gentlemen this was the first video I watched before getting into the doll making "hobby" but for some is their business. Me both, since I can show how talented I can be when I want to. I used to be reserved and always such a conformist. Not anymore people need to be more open minded to this type of sculpting, meaning baby sculpting, love their little feet and hands.

Polymer clay baby Alexandra




This baby is now up for bids on ebay

Baby Alexandra took me a couple of days to finish, but that is because I sometimes do not feel inspired to sculpt. As an artist I have come to notice that when I am inspired, that's when I give my 100 percent.

It has been almost 4 months since I started making these polymer clay babies, I am happy I am keeping these blog entry, that way I can help people that are starting their journey to polymer clay sculpting babies.

It was really hard at first creating these little ones, but you know what? seeing the finished sculptures was really rewarding, and still is.

For all of you that are sculpting out there, please don't give up there is a Polymer clay babies group on Facebook, there you can chat with other sculptors for tips, comments etc.

Armature!! what is it?

           Explaining and armature more in depth.

       Wikipedia  has a really good definition of the word, basically saying that an armature is the skeletal structure of a sculpture. Provides stability when dealing with soft materials such as wax or clay. Which to my knowledge sounds to be true.

         I use them along with my sculptures because it is a useful way to sculpt, making it easier for the sculpture to stay intact when you  are sculpting.

        By adding it to the baby stomach like I always do, it saves me on polymer clay and for some reason it helps when you are curing it as well.


By adding the armature it creates stability when I am still working on the sculpture and by adding some aluminum paper saves on the sculpture material. In this case is (polymer clay)
