Baileysaurus by Panimated Baileysaurus by Panimated
I bought some clay the other day, thought I'd have some fun with it! Turns out, I don't like air-drying clay very much.. I got really frustrated with it, to be honest. Which is why when I was done modeling, I awarded myself with a cup of hot chocolate with a shot of bailey's. And that's how this guy got it's name! That's also where the inspiration for the colours came from. It ended upwith pretty much the same colour-scheme as Pan, which I didn't really intend... But I'm not complaining!

As I said, I found air-drying clay to be quite frustrating, does anyone know a recommendable brand/type of clay that needs to be cooked in an oven or something? I'd love to do more modelling, but I think another material would be better for me... And where I can buy it? (in London/UK)

I still have loads of clay.. I might sell this guy, and the design/character, and make more, I am having fun, despite the frustration!

I don't have a ruler right now, so I can't measure exactly how big the Baileysaurus is.. but it fits in my hand!
The one-pound-coin has a diameter of 2.25 cm, if you're not familiar with it :)

it's really sweet and creamy-coffee-y and delicious! You can be happy you share names with baileys rather than.. uh.. beer. or anything else. lol I wonder if anyone out there is called beer.

Fimo is pretty easy to use and you can get it in more or less any crafting store, primo fino is the best but the normal stuff is good too.

Had a hard time using Fimo Air Drying Clay haha. But what came out looked really good for some reason, despite having a hard time making it stay together before drying

Sculpey clay will do the job for you :D You can get it in Hobbycraft stores, which are a franchise. I don't know where there is one in London, mind you. But any good artist shop will have Sculpey clay ^_^ Failing that, try the company which makes Fimo - they do a similar product to Sculpey. It's quite nice to work with too. I forget the name of that product. There's also something called Eberhart...or...something like that... which has a polymer clay variety. Not sure if that's what I mean XD Fimo can be quite fun, but you need to buy all the individual colours (or mix them together)...

This looks cool though! I love the design :D Love his "spikes" :D

Ooh! There is a Hobbycraft store nearby, I've been there! :la: So that's perfect, actually!
hmm, sculpey clay, all right, note taken. I'll probably put all the clay-types mentioned in this comment-section to the test!
And I see with the fimo-colour-thing... That's kind of annoying, I like to be able to just paint it the way I like. I might give it a try anyways, though!
Thank you Calista, helpful and awesome as always! :meow:

Yaay! Yes, I spend rather too much money in that shop D: Yeah, definitely worth experimenting with for sure :D The other thing I would mention about standard Fimo (it comes in small coloured blocks) is that it's not easy to paint... But if you get the Sculpey equivalent Fimo air drying polymer clay product, it is paintable :D

If you'd like some tutorials on things like painting and building sculptures, I highly recommend [link] She's done some freakin' awesome commissions for me in the past :D Some totally awesome tips in her tutorials :D

woo, yay, I found some sculpey yesterday! They had fimo, too, but I'm trying sculpey to begin with. I think I'll try and make a Pan-sculpture soon.. I need armature wire, though, forgot to buy that... Thanks for the link, I've seen that artist before, the sculptures look AMAZING. Didn't know she had tutorials though, yay!

That should be EberhardFaber :) I think they're the European take on Sculpey... So they're probably the same thing. Although, I've seen the sculpey brand in Hobbycraft for sure :)

I'd say Sculpey, as stated above. Really any polymer clay is good, though. It's my preference for these sorts of things. I still have to paint a sculpture I have sitting right next to me on my desk right now. Arg.

I didn't even know it was called polymer clay until you said it, but yeah, I think that's basically what I'm looking for. What do you use to paint it, then? I'm never sure if I should use acrylics or oil.. Especially since some clay might actually melt when water is added xD

I just use acrylic paint after I bake it. However, most polymer clay artists just purchase the colored clay :3

Nice =) He can be a new Bailey's mascot!
Is it a common practice to build clay models for 3D animations?

Thank you! Haha, he could be, yeah xD I don't know if it's common, but we were asked to do one in plastecine just to "get us thinking in 3D". Baileysaurus here was just made for fun though, and for personal practice :meow:

Any series of Sculpey clay works really well, and the baking is very simple, it only requires a conventional oven. I like this guy's spine frills, very cool :nod:

Sculpey seems to be the most recommended one, I'll probably put that to the test first :D Thank you!
