Rough clay griffin by Reptangle Rough clay griffin by Reptangle
This is the sculpey clay original of the "Paint your own griffin" about twenty minutes after starting it. Sculpting is kinda like building a house , the framing goes really fast -and you think, "hey, this will be done in no time!".... but then comes the hard part...

Ahhh. Sculpey. I am learning so much from you. I can completely sympathize with "but then comes the hard part." But, just a curious question, how come all the detail goes into the gypsum? Isn't it too hard to carve out of, or does the gypsum have a "soft" period? And does Sculpey not take detail well?

Gypsum is a little softer when it is freshly cast, but not much.
This is just how I got used to working. I keep trying different methods of sculpting and always go back to carving gypsum.
 Sculpey is amazing, and can be made to do anything if you know how. I don't.

Thank you ever so much for the advice Ms. Pena. I might try gypsum if I can get my hands on some.

Gypsum isn't necessarily GOOD to work with, it is just what I use!

Gypsum is extremely difficult to cast without defects.

Heh-heh yeeeaaaah, I read up on that while trying to figure out which material to use. Its also a pretty penny to buy in bulk.

My way? I don't own a "way". If you make them they will be YOUR way!
