This project is costing me an arm and a leg!

Now, Moving on to the arms and legs...                                             Firstly, I sculpted in Super Sculpey Firm on top of my armature to make some nice little arms and legs (I've lost the pics of the arms, SORRRY)   I then 'Clayed up' the sculpts with the same process seen in my previous post about the minature silicone girl I made.                                             Here are some pictures!

 After making the moulds, I mixed some silicone with oil paint and catalyst and painted in the first layer...

This was then left for 24 hours to cure!

After a day went by, I chucked a load of silicone in the mould, shown above, squashed the armature in then I clamped two parts of the mould together. (Shown Below!)

This is what they came out like, I was quite pleased!

Just a bit of snipping and filing down, and they were good to go!

High Five!


  1. I really like this, especially the outcome. I've never seen making the limbs like this before. I love how it turned out, it looks very put together.

  2. Thanks Jardley!
    Means a lot! Its a lengthy process!
    If something goes wrong, its definitely frustrating, but its definitely worth it!
    Looking to improve this process in my third year at uni, so keep an eye out for more!
