Custom #:33213

Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Silverhawks
Creator:bet1  
Date Added:September 30, 2011
Base Figure:Sculpted from scratch
Height:7.00 inches
Many years ago, I attempted to see if it was possible to sculpt an entire action figure from scratch. Here is the result. I made an armature from aluminum armature wire and made it posable by connecting joints that I cut from fodder figures. He is articulated at the shoulders, hips, and knees.His gun is made from another figure's accessory and fits into his holster. He is scuplted with super sculpey and painted with acrylic craft paints.

That's remarkable!!!!! Question: How did you get the surface sooth like that? Was it a combination of alcohol rub with sanding afterwards? And the paint job...Dude, great job!!!!

Probably wet and dry sanding. It's what sculptors always use to smooth out their sculpts and get rid of any imperfections.

Thanks Narpa Sword!Before baking, I smooth with a wet finger and a brush dipped in rubbing alcohol. After baking,I use sandpaper and I use a scraping method with a small exacto blade.
