Mini Baking Clay Tutorial by scenceable Mini Baking Clay Tutorial by scenceable
So, I get tons of questions on this type of thing. At some point I do plan on making a new unicorn tutorial that explains things start to finish. However, for now, here's a little one on baking. I did another little tutorial a while ago on hairing sculptures. Eventually I do hope to make a big long one.

Anyway, I'd like to mention that this is just how I do things. There are many ways to bake and mine is certainly not the only way. Just what I do, and what works for me currently :)

I also want to say that I paint my horses, so I can be a lot more flexible with baking. When making dolls or humans you have to be a lot more careful since the skin tone of the clay matters a lot. Dirt particles, cracks, dents, and discolouration can ruin dolls, but with painted sculptures they hardly matter.

As always, if you have questions please ask... I kind of threw this together randomly so I may have left things out. I have a FAQ section on my website where I talk a bit about materials and things, you might find it helpful as well! It's here: [link]

Very cool. :D I didn't know you could bake Sculpty so many times! This opens a whole new window of sculpting possibilities for me. Thank you.
I also never knew you could put Poly fill in the oven. No more flat shiny spots on my sculpts in the future!

I know that this is older, so I'm a little late on commenting. I follow you on FB and Deviant and you are such an amazing artist! Thank you for taking the time to show how you do things! I love your horses!

wow this is ammaaaazingly helpful. baking things on stuffing pillow is brilliant, how on earth did you figure that out? and I love the tips on what types of clay to use for different parts, solves so many problems I've had with polymer clay projects in the past... this tutorial is really making me want to get back into it again, thanks!

The pillow thing was taught to me by other who make dolls, wasn't something I figured out :XD: And you should get back into it! It's fun =P
