Just a quick compilation of the progress photos for my Eeveelution sculpture.

Armature -  I use aluminum armature wire.  Each of these armatures are removable from the base.  This helps me work on each figure more easily throughout each stage without the base and the other figures getting in my way.  To attach them, I simply drill holes in the wood and then run the wire into the base.

Blocking - I sculpt using a 50/50 blend of Super Sculpey and Sculpey Firm.  Arranging three figures in one piece is trickier than you’d think.  I adjusted these constantly throughout the creation of this piece.  I had to make sure each figure was visible enough to look interesting while keeping the overall piece looking dynamic.

Refined - This is the baked sculpture.  All of the details have been added and rubbing alcohol was used prior to baking to help smooth out small imperfections.  YES, I bake the base with the sculpture.  Sculpey is a low-temp clay so as long as you are following the baking instructions and your oven is in good working order, there is no danger of burning the wood.

Sanded - Each figure took about 2-3 hours each to sand.  I use 180 grit sand paper and fine steel wool.  I use Platikote sandable primer before painting.

Painted - I use Delta Ceramcoat acrylic paints.  I also used semi-gloss varnish on Vaporeon to give her a “wet” look.  Jolteon and Flareon are accented with the varnish mixed with gold sparkle pearl ex to help add some variation in texture.
