Final pictures of my pagasus guard sculpt.

Absolutly loved every second of making this figure even though the wings were a pain in the flank.

Ok, quick run down of materials used:

Armature: garden wire
Bulk of sculpt: Milliput standard (2 part epoxy clay)
Detal work: 50/50 mix of Milliput and 'Green stuff'
Base of wings and other details: plasticard

This is very awesome
I love all the details on his armor and wings. And for sculpting the first time, the pose you chose is very ambitious, very well done! :D

I have one question tho: How durable is that plasticard on the wings? Do you think it would bend/break if you posted the sculpture in the mail? I understand there are different thicknesses of plasticard but I don't know which one you used here. Just wanting to know, it seems like a very interesting material :)

PS- That 2nd photo is an excellent action shot :3

The thinkness of the plasticard is 1mm. For such a thin material its suprisingly tough. It is fairly flexable so any minor movement will not affect it however it will snap if bent too far. As far as shipping goes, if I were to sell this piece I would make sure its entombed in as much bubble wrap as I can get my hands on. :)

Cool, I'll definitely have to try it out.

Oh my God! You used Milliput for this! Those wings are absolutely stunningly beautiful. I've been trying to get to grips with wings and these are so much better than anything I've attempted. Absolutely beautiful!

Yep, Milliput is by far my favorate material to work with. The wings are a mix of Milliput and green stuff which gives an absolutly fantastic sculpting medium. The mix negates the crumblyness (is that a real word?) of the Milliput and the stickyness of the green stuff allowing crisp detail with little effort.

If you're interested in knowing how I sculpted the wings I would be happy to publish a tutorial of sorts. Nothing to fancy just a set of step by steps.

Oh I'd absolutely love a tutorial! I currently just cut out the feather and shape it onto the wire, but I don't get the same sense of movement that you do.

I've never thought of mixing my milliput with green stuff. Do you use the ultra fine milliput, or the basic yellow/grey stuff?
