Q: What kind of clay do you use?
A: I use FIMO Professional clay for all of my sculpting, which I bake at 265F for 30 minutes
Q: How long does it take you to sculpt a figure?
A: It all depends on how complex is the pose and the costuming. Since I don’t work on them every day it could take me a month or so.
Q: Which process of making the figure you like the best?
A: I like it all…research, finding solutions on how to make everything work, sculpting and costuming. I love the challenge to create something I have been visualizing for a long time.
Q: What size do you like to create your figures?
A: Well, I started in cloth making them 24″ 🙂 Once I started sculpting in clay I dropped down to 10″ (1:6 Scale), which I really like. I had to learn to change the scale on many things fabric, beads, props etc. which was a challenge.
Q: Why did you change from cloth to polymer clay?
A: With cloth I was not able to achieve the realistic features and poses I wanted to create.
Q: Do you sketch before starting a piece?
A: At times I do sketch depending on how intricate the figure is but when I have something in mind I build it in my head, take it apart and build it again until I am clear how to start. I do use pictures for reference if I am trying to achieve a certain look I have in mind.
Q: Do you use an armature?
A: Yes, I always start with an armature to achieve the pose I want. Plus, it gives a sturdy structure to sculpt the figure
Q: Do you sell your figures?
A: Yes, but I don’t sculpt to sell. I sculpt because it is a passion. I am never ready to get rid of any of my figures. I like them to hang around so I can enjoy them 🙂
