While waiting for resin to dry. I made a new sculpt. It's based on Jack Cusumano's design. Here is the cute little guy

The Cute Reaper looks very nice! You really have some sculpting talent!  :thumb:

P.s. Can i ask what type of clay you use to make the sculpts? Super Sculpey Firm? Super Sculpey Medium Blend? Another type of clay?

Hi I use CX5, which is a wax clay. So you need to heat it up to soften it before you can use

There is a lot of awesomeness going on in this thread. Great work Kenda, they look great! As others have said, you really are a great sculptor.  :thumb:

Thank you everyone.

You just have to do a lot sanding to make it smooth. Be patient will help heaps too

Wish I could get one of your caps in the future! I was working on a VW Bus sculpt and was about done when someone told me about yours. Rip. Haha
