female elf l by renemarcel27 female elf l by renemarcel27
my first female and elf sculpture bust. I made it in waterbased clay, still have to hollow it out before it can be baked in the oven.

Fantastic work on the hair. You hollow your sculptures out before you bake them? :omg: What wonderful thing dose this achieve?

Thanks, Well if I do not hollow my sculptures out :fear: they will prob. explode while baking in the oven (500 to 1100 degrees Celcius) due to the small air bubbles captured inside the clay.
The clay has to be approx a bit thinner than 1 inch thick.
I hope this explains it to you :highfive:

Wow explode huh? I’ve only had one sculpture literally explode on me in the oven because the temperature was a tad too high for it. I use sculpy with oven tempter at 275 and it says the same thing about it the 1 inch and such but I baked some sculptures that were up to half a foot thick and they were just fine. Just some minor cracks but with a touch up with super glue, its like they never happened. If your clay is bubbling up, your temperature might be a little too high. What clay do you use? Is it terribly expensive? I get mine for 5 bucks while getting 5 boxes of it at a time. Your sculpting skills are so amazing and I enjoyed going through your gallery!

Hey, there thanks for your compliments, I really like your gallary too. You seem to have an amzing talent at 13 already sculpting these beautifull dogs with super detail! great work. I use ceramic clay and it has to be baked at at least 500 or 600 celcius. Most of my sculpts are about life size and hollowing them out is always the most scary and swetty part of the proces. Just last week at the fire place the owner showed me a piece that had broken in scatters because the artist didn't hollow it out good enough, air was trapped inside, expanded and the sculpture cracked beyond repair. I get about 10 kilo for about 9 euro (approx 10 or 11 dollar)

But...do you sure, that it's an elf?)) I think, she rather looks like orc-shaman))

thanks for liking it. And no, no orc! If I wanted her to be orcisch she would hardly have anything human left. (see my gallery for some orcs). Without the ears she'd be more like an (half) asian woman.

WOW! I love it! Why don't you cast this positive sculpture in plaster, take that plaster negative, pour liquid clay into that, and bake the hollow clay positive from the plaster negative? I think it's a great sculpture!

Thanks a lot, but i am afraid my technicall skills arent good enough to make a mold like that. It sound like a good way to reproduce ones work multiple times!

yes indeed. Though it didn't work out the way I planned. I used some reference pictures I had shot, but I wasn't able to match the result with the pictures.

Ik zag je werk, je kan goed tekenen dus neem gewoon 'ns een stuk klei. je zult versteld staan van wat je kan bereiken met een beetje oefening. Ik ben ooit met een stuk darwi klei begonnen, droogt gewoon in de lucht en hoef je niet te bakken.

Hey, bedankt voor de aardige feedback! Ik kan me voorstellen dat je met wat oefening een heel eind kan komen, maar dit niveau van jou is echt goed! Doe je dit allemaal voor de fun, of maak je het voor games oid?

dank je. Ik doe did als hobby, de laatse tijd. Ik wil ze ooit nog'ns gaan schilderen. Volgens mijn "oude reclameburo en kunst verzamelaar baas"en vriend moet ik ze verkopen bij een of andere gallerie. Maar daarvoor heb ik nog te weinig stukken. anyway als je wat meer wilt weten moet je de website van deze mman maar es bekijken. zijn training methodes in z'n boeken en dvd's hebben mij geweldig geholpen.
