Thank you ^.^ I'm flattered! She's made from Super Sculpey which is about 15 bucks a pound. It's stronger and sands much nicer than other baking clay I've used.
The biggest help in making a sculpture look show accurate is by drawing or printing a picture of the pony and using it like a template. I compare sizes while I'm working. My sculptures wouldn't be nearly as good without such a simple added step of a template.
Feel free to ask questions any time! I'm always willing to help if I can.
It really is great clay. Regular sculpey actually tears when it breaks which makes it difficult to fix. It's hooorrible to sand because it's always soft. Even after it's baked, I can push my thumb nail into it and it will leave a mark in the hardened clay.
Super Sculpey bakes more like ceramic, so the finished product is much harder and it sands much smoother. If it does happen to break, the breaks are clean which makes it easy to fix with glue and a little sanding. (It reacts amazingly well with super glue *not hot glue*) Ooooh, and my favorite part about Super Sculpey is that before you bake it, it always stays soft. Sculpey III can be difficult to work with and eventually harden too much. It's consistency is very unpredictable.
All in all, Super Sculpey is a better value, more reliable, and easier to work with from start to finish.
*Gets off her soap box*
So an answer to your question, yes. You can make a much larger and more detailed sculpt with Super Sculpey.
