This will def help me, mostly because where i live we dont really have sculpting tools and it bugs me xD and the expensive ones on teh internet dont help either haha

but im also having trouble finding wire for the base/skeletons of my scultpures(that i have never done be for, but the lack of tools and wire are preventing me soo..xD) do you know any hardware stores or online store that sell it for a decent price? maybe ive missed somehting while searching the internet haha. thanks and i love your sculptures!

Thank you for the comment! ^^ Yeah sculpting tools can be expensive. And you'll end up putting most of them away and you'll never touch them again XD For the armature wires, I always buy them at home depot or reno depot. They're A LOT cheaper there than they are in art stores. 

For online stores, I know that blick sells different sized wires: www.dickblick.com/products/bli…


And sorry for the late reply! T_T

I like to use it for fur! Especially for sculpting short, fine hairs.

ok thanks. have you looked at wood-splitter-lee's artwork?> she is AMAZING! i want to make a wolf face resembling her wolves,


  but i don't know how to form a snout, cant get that slanting look and the sides of the face is always to skinny. could you give me some tips?

XPantherArtX Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes I know, her work is wonderful! :la: She's one of the many artists who inspired me to try sculpting! =)

First of all, you have to think about how the skull of the animal is made. Use many references and start to build the animal from within, in shapes. You can worry about the details later. The first step is forming the right shapes and for that it helps if you have skeleton and muscles references of the animal. I have a folder on my computer with over 300 drawings/photos of different kind of animals! :D Do your research and practice! Actually when you think about it, it's just like drawing! :nod: Take your time and have fun! :happybounce:

Here's a list of very good sculpting books that you should definitely take a look at! They're my favorite references:


- Creating lifelike figures in polymer clay : www.amazon.com/Creating-Lifeli…

- The art of animal drawing (A book for drawing but it is very useful for sculptor too!) : www.amazon.com/The-Art-Animal-…

- Pop Sculpture (More of a action figure/collectible book but very interesting!) : www.amazon.com/Pop-Sculpture-F…

Oh and whatīs the thing you showed in the second picture? Thereīs a Hairclip, a nail, the "flat" one and ?

XPantherArtX Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks, glad you like it! :D The last thing is part of another hairclip, that was broken. On the last big pictures I've got different kind of nails, more loops and pins. But honestly, the only tools I use all the time are the loops made with the guitar strings and wires! I don't use the others as much. ^^'
