Cat on ice by Sharpe19 Cat on ice by Sharpe19
New feline sculpt that I was working upon for :iconrincessa: before the heat of the apt started to really soften the clay, so it's sitting in the fridge a while to harden up. Just placing it in my thumb went into the lower jaw -.- Will post pictures tomorrow when I can handle and refine it.

Yesterday it was 111oF here. I attempted to quench my boredom with a little scuplting, but even in the house the sculpt was no match for the heat! I ended up with a rather sick looking creature, melty and all.
I do wish you and your sculpt luck! Hope he survives!

I kinda just went through the same thing. I guess its that time of year. I am worried about putting the Smooth-on dragon skin on though. Do you think I should pop it in the fridge between layers? or is it just the first layer of silicone that matters the most?

Thaaaaat I have no clue about. I've ever dealt with heat like this while casting, but know humidity can effect silicone. I wouldn't pop it in there either as that will effect how it cures.

Okay, Thank you. I wish humidity was the problem. Since its been 108+ here the past few days I have to keep cycling my molds around the house to prevent them from melting.

Looks really good! :)
I made a head sculpt out of clay but eventually it dried up and cracked. I guess leaving it in the fridge would've stopped that :?

This is a different kind of clay. It's an oil base so it doesn't dry out, but will melt if it gets to hot, hence the fridge session XD
