what kind of gloss do you use?

ShaidySkyDesign Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
I use a waterbase verathane, or a high gloss laquer, or a high gloss acrylic. I switch alot between the three depending on the project and the materials I used.

He's gorgeous! All the fins and spines on his head came out so nicely and well shaped, and the detailing with the spots looks great :)

SO CUTE!
i have a question:
do you make the dragon in pieces and glue them together then bake them, or do them all separately? i have always had trouble getting the pieces to stick!

Thanks! I use different techniques depending on the size, complexity, and style of the sculpt I am creating. This particular sea dragon I sculpted the main body first then added the facial details, then I pieced together the fins and added them. Once that was completed I add all the rest of the details and then I bake it as a single sculpt.

I have found if I have issues with the clay not sticking together well it is usually due to the conditioning of the clay. I condition all the colors I plan to use first, and lay them out. As I work on my sculpt I will continue to recondition the colors as I go to keep all my clay at the consistency I like to work with. If it is particularly cold in my studio or if I have very cold hands I use a pasta machine to soften my clay.
