Heey :D I wanted to ask where do you get your wooden bases for the sculptures?
Selfmade or do you buy it somewhere?

As always excellent work ;)

Which type of clay you use that is specified for painting? I've heard that have some types that we cannot paint.

Your stuff is so cool! And your tutorials are exactly what I've been looking for! I've been dying to try sculpting like this but had no idea where to start, and I'm so happy I found you.

I do have a couple small firing questions if it doesn't bother you, do you fire with the armature still in the clay? And what is your time and temp?

awesome to hear!  glad i could help!  i use sculpey which is a low temp clay so yes i can bake in the oven with the armature inside.  as for time and temp, follow the directions on whatever particular product you are using.

You're so amazing!

I'd to make you a question; i'm learning to sculpt like you do but when it comes to the paint part i have a little a problem, the brush leaves marks in the surface like scratches from the hairs of the brush itself, I don't know if I'm explaining myself haha

Thank you for everything ;)

you need to water down the paint and apply in thin layers.  it takes longer but the results are a smooth, even coat of paint.  hope that helps and thank YOU!

I tried out your advice and worked perfect! Thank you so much! I love that you reply everything, and FAST! haha

Now one more question if it doesn't bother you n_n' Some of my scultps had been cracking after I have them finished. the clay I use is Super Sculpey and I've been thinking to add Super Sculpey firm to my works, but I think in any case, the clay shouldn't crack when finished :/

Hope you can help me :)

Greeting from Chile!

hooray :D  happy to help where i can.

as far as cracking goes, that can be for a number of reasons.  sometimes if you make an area of clay too thick, it will crack under the weight.  if you don't let the sculpture cool in the oven after baking, it can crack from cooling too quickly.  you also have to make sure to use a strong armature that is supporting the sculpture properly.  it really just depends on what is going on with your particular sculpture, but i hope that helps!
