feline sculpt by Sharpe19 feline sculpt by Sharpe19
Needed a sculpt that was smaller than my tiger, but larger than my small "big cat" base so I went with a base a bit more styled like my newest wolf. This mask will fit a 21-23 inch head and will be used for an upcoming commission.

Casts will not be sold, sorry.

Do you have to seal the clay before you pour your silicone? The silicone I bought says to do so, but I'm a bit short on stuff that can seal it properly, so... I'm hoping I won't have to, but I thought it'd be better to ask than to outright just ruin some reusable clay.

Depends on the clay and the silicone.

I use an oil base clay that doesn't require being sealed. Other clays that contain sulphur aren't recommended since they can inhibit the curing process unless sealed, and they must me sealed really well.

I used an oil based non-drying clay, but I don't have a clue if it has sulfur in it. I'm going to double check with the seller, but I'll probably seal it anyway just in case.
:) Thanks so much!

This is just modelling clay, so its sculpted with my hands and a wooden tool. It's just sculpted over a miscast of a resin head that I made a while ago so that I don't have to use so much clay.

Thanks so basically you make a mold sculpt put the resin over it and take it off after it drys and cut the mouth and hinge it?

Not quite. I pour silicone over the clay. Once it cures I peel the silicone off, pour resin into the silicone, and once it cures I pull it out.

What kind of feline is this supposed to be?
Also, I was wondering how long it takes for this to solidify, and where you get it.

General feline, mainly sculpted for a custom commission. As for solidifying, can't say I follow... Just finished sculpting this about an hour ago.

Ah lol. It's an oil based clay so it doesn't dry out. ;)

I think the point is that she doesnt want it to dry X3. Instead shell probably make a mold of it with silicone so that she can use it to cast resin masks. Then this clay gets rolled up into a ball to use some other time. Correct me if I'm wrong :D

Yeah, I sorta got that when she said it was oil based. Thank you though! c:

Oh, this is neat. It's pretty life like, and I'm sure the commissioner will be very pleased. Everything you do turns out incredible. What is this mask made of, and is it heavy, or pretty light?

This is just the claw sculpt. It will be molded in silicone and a cast resin copy will be made from the mold, so the resulting mask will be very light and strong.

Oh yes, that's what I suspected it was going to be like. It looks very awesome though! You did a wonderful job on this sculpt!
