Princess Cadence WiP MLP FiM by Reyndrys Princess Cadence WiP MLP FiM by Reyndrys
I set her aside for a long time, but I finally broke down and finished sculpting her. She stands like.. 6 inches tall, I dunno. My measuring tape is WAY over there and I'm feeling lazy.

What clay is she made out of? Is it expensive? How do you have so much skill in making her look SO much like the real Princess Cadence?! Sorry... too many questions...

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.

Wow. 15 a pound?! Gosh, that MUST be great clay! Are you able to make bigger sculptures than those of regular sculpy? It said the pony was 6 inches or something. Kind of forgot. :P

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* :D 
So an answer to your question, yes. You can make a much larger and more detailed sculpt with Super Sculpey.

Wow. That's awesome. :) Yeah, my sis and I have been trying to find good clay for as long as we've been artists! Where do you get it?
Reyndrys Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Any craft store really. Michael's, Joann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby..  They're typically on the bottom shelf in the clay isle.

Awesome. :) There's a Micheal's not far from my house. Thanks!
