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?

Any craft store really. Michael's, Joann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby..  They're typically on the bottom shelf in the clay isle.

This is so perfect, it must have taken you a lot of patience to get the shape of her figure just right! o: Also, how did you make this so smooth?

Super fine grit sand paper. Of course I did all the hard stuff with really course paper, then went over it again with the fine stuff. Thank you so much for the compliment! :D Comments always make my day!

Like... how fine? o:
Two different kinds of sand-paper, I never thought of that!
It looks sanded everywhere, some places I can't reach with my sandpaper on my sculptures. :/
and you're welcome! ^-^

I actually build my ponies in sections which makes them very easy to sand. I have my wire armature, then on top of it I'll make a couple legs, bake it, sand it. Then I'll add more legs, bake, sand... Neck and head, bake, sand.. You get the idea. The glory of baking clay is you can bake it as many times as you want as long as you let it cool off.
Cadence I probably baked 8-10 times. Without doing it that way, sanding would be a pain in the butt!
My fine grit is P150, I actually just touched it in the store and said, "yep, that'll work!" Haha

Hm... I've wanted to try that, but I'd think it would be a little risky, because if it doesn't work, it's just a waste of clay.
Also, I don't know if my clay can stick to baked clay that well. I work with Super Sculpey Living Doll Clay and/or Fimo Soft clay.
Yes, I do love that clay can be baked as many times as you want! (:

I'll keep that in mind, I might have some P150 grit o:

A very nice Cadence sculpt. The shape is near perfect and the finish is really smooth. The finished product should look amazing.

I hand sanded her with a pretty fine grit for quite a while. She was a pain in the ass for a while because she kept falling over in the oven. Her mane put weight on her back making her balance, finally. Thank you for the kind words! I'm painting her as we speak.. because I have four arms >.>
