Materials and Tools

Please read the description of any piece to see what materials I used for its construction.

My maquettes are constructed using Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm.  Some of my maquettes as well as my larger sculptures are made using Aves Apoxie Sculpt and/or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam.    I also work with Monster Clay and create molds/casts from these sculpts.

My armatures consist of household aluminum foil, as well as aluminum armature wire.  I paint with Delta Ceramcoat craft acrylic paints, using both an airbrush (for larger pieces) and hand brushes.

I buy my wood bases at Jo-Ann, Michael's, and AC Moore.  They are available at most local craft stores in the US.  I am not familiar with where you can purchase them internationally, but factory direct craft sells wood bases and ships internationally.

Concerning Sales

If a piece is for sale in my gallery, it will state so in the description.  If it does not mention being for sale, it was either a custom piece created for someone else or it has already been sold (or I am just not selling it!)  Please do not ask me to remake any pieces in my gallery; not only is this boring for me to do, it defeats much of the purpose of owning an original.  I do not mind sculpting the same character again, but it needs to be in a fresh light.

Check out the for sale section in my gallery to see a selection of works currently available for purchase.

A Note About Questions

I will no longer be responding to material related questions that can be answered with a simple Google search or that I have answered on this page.  I am not doing this to be mean.  I get a LOT of questions that I simply do not have the time to respond to.

If you have a questions about technique, PLEASE check my tutorials in my gallery to see that it isn't answered there first.  I put a lot of time and effort into those and they explain a majority of what I do.  

Group Requests

While I appreciate the motion,  I do not accept requests to unthemed groups or groups with themes that are irrelevant to the particular sculpture.  Please don't take it personally if I decline your group invitation.  I welcome themed group invitations, regardless of quality control.


Comments

Yes, I have comments turned off.  It is for a number of reasons, but mainly because I don't have the time to manage them.  If you really want to comment on a specific piece, feel free to send me a note or comment on the gallery page.

Holiday 2014 Dates by emilySculpts
Holiday 2014 Dates

November 28 - My annual Black Friday sale begins at midnight EST!  (Remember, that is the night of Thanksgiving.)  I will post a special coupon code that will be good in my Etsy shop.  Everything except books will be on sale.  (I don’t make much off book sales as it is as I have to purchase them from my publisher.)  The best prices will be available for 24 hours only.  The sale will continue throughout the weekend, but at a smaller discount.

November 29 - The eBay auction for my final Toothless Bust set will begin at 5:00PM EST.  This will be a week-long auction with no reserve.  Bidding will start at the low price of $200 USD!  This is the last chance to get one of these bust sets as I will not be producing any more for public purchase.

December 1 - My Cyber Monday Sale begins at Midnight EST and runs through Midnight Saturday, December 6 (the evening of December 5).   Like my Black Friday sale, this won’t extend to books

December 15 - This is the last day for guaranteed Holiday delivery in the USA.  Make sure to get your orders in early.

Imperial Dragons Now Available! by emilySculpts
Imperial Dragons Now Available!

Go to my Etsy Shop now to buy!!!

I have the five pre-painted figures seen above as well as a sixth one that isn’t pictured.

I don’t currently have any blank paint-your-own or custom paints available on these.  Hopefully I can get some up before the holidays.  (These are really big figures and more time consuming to make.)

Just wanted to say that I just received your book & it is wonderful!  Very informative & it gave some really great tips.  I feel inspired to get back into sculpting armatures (haven't touched my blocks of sculpey for over a year).   Keep up the good work, your sculpts are amazing!

First off I would like to say you are amazing!! I recently bought your book to improve my sculpting skills and it is really helpful. I have finished my armatures, but now I have a problem. My armature is missing ears, I don't know if they don't need it. I think mine will need them, because he really has big ears and I can see the ears breaking. So can you help me and tell me how you make armatures for the ears?
Thanks in advance!!

thanks so much!  you should be able to make a support for the ears the same way you do for the arms and legs.  or you can just wrap some thinner wire around the main armature to add them on.
