It looks very elegant, I've never personally thought of combining wires and sculpey and it seems great for making very slender and bendy creatures ^^

Also love the original sketch too, this is such a beautiful species! ^.^

Thank you!  I'm very much going for slender and graceful. 

I've mixed wire and sculpey in the past and it was a fail (the scuptly just cracked).  This is an experiment of using Apoxy Sculpt (self drying, no shrink, turns to rock) and very firm wire (not traditional armature wire).  So far so good! 

This might just be perfect for some truly bendy creatures.  If I can get good enough I want to do my Morning Stretch as a sculpture (contortionist Gambit and his cats). 

Hugs!  THank you for stopping in!

I think making skinny contortionists with this technology should be a lot of fun with great results :D

Aww it's kinda said to know sculpey can crack, I still have a pack of old sculpey that I played with but never baked, but my dad now has an oven that can produce the required temperature for baking, so I was thinking of making something but now that you said it can crack, I'm kind of unsure... specially that my sculpey is pretty old, like probably as old as 5+ years XD But oh well, it's not really a problem to keep it unbaked, I've noticed that sculpey hardens pretty much on its own if you leave it, so it takes a while to warm it up until it's soft again, and at least in this half-done state it doesn't crack XD

Even the ones that bake perfect don't look quite right, scuplty just isn't my medium. The problem with never cooking them (something I did with on), they gather dust until eventually you accidentally smoosh them.  Heehee.
