Can I use a-oxide sculpt instead of miliput? its also a two part clay

I never worked with a-oxide sculpt nor do i know what it is or how it works (never heard of it before) but if it is like any other air dry clay (i assume it is something like magic sculpt /apoxy sculpt) then i don't see why you wouldn't be able to use it instead of milliput.

I have to say, that hair is amazing!
And I want to correct you on one thing: Milliput is not "air drying", it is a two part epoxy, which dries because of a chemical reaction between the two parts. Air has nothing to do with it, it even hardens submerged into water!

Wow, thank you so much for this tutorials. They helped me a lot?
Is it possible that you do another for coloring sculptures? Or can you tell me what paint you use? The simple acrylic ones?
 am afraid of messing up my sculpture with the color, any tip would be kind ^^°

you can use cheap acrylics if your a hobbyist or just starting out, how ever when you want to sell it is advisable to use artist grade acrylics as they have a much better light fastness and are better pigmented (more pigment, less fillers) i use pastel dust and mica powder a lot too to paint my sculptures with

Thank you for all 3 tutorials. I plan on starting out with small, simple figures, then moving up into working with armatures. I sculpted many things back in high school, but that was decades ago...>.> I appreciate the time and effort you put into these tutorials.

what clay do u use for your beautiful sculpture?
mangakasan's avatar
mangakasanHobbyist Digital Artist
Polymer clays, usually i use a mix of super sculpey and sculpey firm, for thin/fragile parts i use apoxy sculpt (air dry clay)

Wow, this is so f***** helpful :iconla:
But I still have one question: How do you grab your final sculpture to put it into the oven? I always - ALWAYS - have the problem that I want to grab my sculpture, I grab it, and then it bulges in. It´s so nasty :( Please help me :)
mangakasan's avatar

When i do them in parts i grab the armature side or the already baked side :3 When i do a piece in whole i usually make the base out of air drying clay so i can handle it while sculpting further and eventually to put it in the oven.
