    Arrow DoubleTap's Sculpey Tutorial & All Things Sculpey!

    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.

    Placing your sculpy in boilding water also works-especially if you have sculpted over plastic. A sculpy head built over a Wintworth neck assembly should boil for about 15 to 20 minutes. I hang the piece in the pot so it does not actually touch the bottom of the pot. This method allows you to use taxidermy eyes, plastic bits and additions to plastic heads and bodies without melting the plastic. Just be careful handeling the piece when you first take it out of the boil as the platic will be soft.

    Sculpty can also be smoothed with those citrus oil cleaners and a brush. It works much better than water and doesn't mess with the curing process. Sculpy sells a "sculpy smooth" but I can never find it and a container of citrus oil cleaner lasts forever.

    Ohh it was my pleasure HP. Imagine my surprise when I saw this stickied at the top, 4 months after I originally posted it.

    Cool toot, DT! Very nice technique, and it's apparently archived as well. Ya know, someone told me (I won't say who) that you wore Hello Kitty jammies under your utilities, on ops. Look, if it works for you, it's all good...LOLOL

    I use a cloth filter to avoid the pieces touching the pot.

    Really Great Job Rick

    One question (from a techno idiot...me). How durable is the Sculpy?? I've bake some ammo boxes, but never have tried to apply it to a soft headsculpt or body. Does it take a minimum of abuse?

    Super Sculpy is tougher, holds more detail and is more durable than regular sculpy. what i do is mix one box of super sculpy with two blocks of sculpy "premo" clay (one black, one white) gives ya a nice strong neutral gray clay.

    oh and if ya want really durable and no worry about baking or boiling try out Apoxie Sculpt. air dries and is non-toxic.
