This is a candle holder I made my mom for her birthday this year (she's a huge fan of the Nightmare Before Christmas!). I'm not super proud of the sculpture (except the face, I like it), and I'm pretty embarrassed by the paint...but overall I really liked how it came out! The glowing effect with a candle in it was exactly what I hoped for!
This was made in Sculpey Original. I had a really hard time getting any detail into this clay, though. It's basically like trying to sculpt a huge piece of bubble gum! Does anyone out there have any tricks for getting Sculpey to firm up a bit? I sure would appreciate any advice for working with this stuff! It's the only readily available clay around me, and the closest art store is about two hours away and doesn't even carry much clay...so if I could get this stuff to work for me when I'm out of my Chavant clay, that would be great!
