This is a figure I've wanted to make for a while. The Cassandra Caine Batgirl with the Chris Nolan logo and Michael Keaton batbuckle.

I love your work! Are these made sculpted using polymer clay?

Comment by Hasani Walker on September 2, 2012 at 1:38pm

Thank you! I do use polymer clay.

That's awesome how did you do that. I would l love to make figures like that have any advice for me. I have no experience ...

Wow, that's really cool!  I hope this isn't too vague, but how do you get the wrinkles on the clothes to look so natural?  Like the wrinkles on the thighs or around the waist?

Like Justin, I also have no experience, so I'm also trying to learn how to make puppets as well as you--I should say, as well as everyone else on this site, heheh.

Thank you!  I've been making sculptures for most of my life now, I'd say the best thing is to constantly practice sculpting.  It's also good practice to concentrate on certain body parts for a time, like practicing hands for a day, then faces, and so on.  As for the wrinkles in clothing JanusClockwork, first I apply a thin roll of clay on the body for the wrinkle and then I blend the edges.  Other times I'll carve the wrinkle right on the clay.  I have a series of dental tools I use for sculpting, but only a few years ago the only tools I had were toothpicks and sewing needles, so you don't need to start off with the best tools, just something that will help you get into small areas.  Another bit of advice, placing plastic wrap over the clay and creating wrinkles on top of that will help keep the wrinkles smooth and is especially helpful if you're just starting out.  Please feel free to ask me anything else anytime.

Is she aculy pose able ? About how much dose she cost to make?
Comment by Hasani Walker on September 6, 2012 at 10:25pm

This model isn't pose able, she's just a maquette.  Though a model like her can be molded and given an armature for stop motion, but I don't really want to go through the steps of making a puppet for a character I don't own (though the mouth area and eyes would be great for replacement pieces).  A figure like this doesn't cost too much to make.  The bulk of the inside is actually aluminum foil.

Is she painted or is she covered in black latex....dose the clay dry hard?
