Hey there, I'm having a little art sale with all my currently available sculpted artworks plus other fantasy type art to try to get myself out of a not-great financial situation. Please feel free to check out what I've got, I thought I'd post a pic or two here as a teaser:

I'm very fond of this book, the colours are so pretty :D Though, doing the lines for the feathers took quite a while ;)
This is the cover of a blank sketchbook 8" x 10" and the peacock's eye is real glass, his gaze follows you as you tilt the book :)

I have a few questions regarding Fimo and/or Sculpey. I have worked with Sculpey (Sculpey III) from age 6 and a half until around 20. Due to negative and stressful factors in my life, there was a "2 year pause" from sculpting. I live in Germany now and in contrary to Sculpey, one can find Fimo in most arts & crafts shops. I have started working with Fimo (although not so regularly like I had earlier) since this Spring. I'm not sure if it's due to whether I work with Fimo Classic or Fimo Soft, if it's due to the 2 year pause, or if it is actually due to the difference(s) (when there are any) between Sculpey and Fimo.
Besides the difference in the grad and the baking time between Sculpey and Fimo, do any of you experience/notice any differences when it comes to sculpting with either/or? Or could it actually be due to the 2 year pause or maybe the difference between Fimo Soft and Fimo Classic.
I appreciate any help and advice.
Many thanks in advance. Current Mood: annoyed

Greetings + Paints?
Greetings! I’ve been working with Sculpey a while, but consider myself a beginner. I found the clay color and techniques that work well for me so far. The problems I am having are with paints. Heavy Acrylic paints leave brush strokes, and lighter pains seem to peel off come glazing time. Does anyone have a remedy for this? I have been using mainly Liquitex Acrylic Colors and Folkart Artist’s Pigments. The Folkart is great for a clean matte finish. It leaves brush strokes, but slightly less than Liquitex.
I do not have the resources for airbrush painting kits or anything like that.
If anyone can recommend an easy to find paint that works well or general painting techniques…I would be eternally grateful. Examples of my work…well…the better ones are below.( More behind cut.Collapse )

Sorry if this question sounds stupid but I'm new to this art and I was driven to it because of those cute doughnut charms I've seen everywhere online. So I bought some Sculpey III and I've been trying to make something with it but it has fingerprints all over. Do I need tools, gloves or something?
Any tips would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

New, with a couple of questions!
I'm new to the community but have been working with polymer clay for a few years now.
I started out making custom wedding cake toppers (personalized to look like the couple) and am now into ornaments, magnets, and a lot more.
I was wondering how you all prevent fingerprints on your work? I have always used latex gloves when working with the clay. It works well for no fingerprints, but the gloves get expensive after awhile (I change them every time I work with a different colour), and they also irritate my hands a bit.
Does anyone else have a strategy for no fingerprints/colour mixing on the clay?

Hello all, I am new to this group as well as to working with clay. I would like to get into making clay figures. I am looking for a no toxic recipe for clay that is either air dry-able or does not give off the toxic fumes that store bought clay can when baked. Although I know this only happens when the clay is burned I have a pet bird and am unwilling to take the risk of making such a mistake. Thanks.
EDIT: Got some polymer clay at the store today to try to work with. I held it in my hands to warm it up, kneaded it, rolled it, twisted it; etc for an hour or more. It was still terribly hard and made my hands hurt. Did I just not work with it long enough to condition it? Did I get an old batch? Any advice is appericiated. Books tell you how to condition but don't tell you how to know when it's done. I was under the impression once conditioned it would be really soft and easy to work with?
