OK, thought I would put a little tutorial together of my Gordon Freeman Sculpey experience. I know many of you are tons more talented and probably already have a tutorial up but this one is for the new guys I guess. LOL Enjoy.

Excellent tutorial; he does look a lot like Gordon Freeman. Love to see the finished figure.

Thanks DoubleTap, you inspired me. I attempted my first mod
thanks to your awesome tutorial. I, however, didn't photo my
method, but these are my results. I started with the bland,
blank eyed Keanue "Speed" sculpt from Hot Toy's SWAT figure.
I added the sideburns, mustache, soulpatch, eyebrows and bangs
plus I extended the hair at the back, though you can't see it. I used
Black Sculpey which match the existing hair and 'baked' in front of a
portable space heater.
I also repainted the eyes blue, glazed with Fimo acrylic gloss, and I
brushed on powdered pastel colours. Reds and browns around eyes and
nose and burnt umber and black along the jaw to hint at a bit of beard
'shadow' which I fixed with a light coat of matte spray which
I wish had been a touch duller.

Can dragon heads be safely cured at fimo/sculpy firing tempratures?

Nice to see some more use of Sculpey : it's great stuff .
Johnny , I did an experiment to answer your question very recently : I put a moustache on a BBI head , and a DML head , and put them in the oven at 125c , the usual firing temperature :They were fine : were a little soft until cool , but the Sculpey fired , and the heads are unmarked .
You need to watch the temperature : I wouldn't like to answer for the results if it were a shade hotter .

Thanks Tony that answered my question, previously I've dunked the head quickly into boiling water to set the Sculpey I've used for mustaches.
