Many people often ask what it takes to create a dinosaur model,
I have assembled a list of suggested items above to help the beginning
modeler to get started. I am sure that there are many more tools
that could be utilized, however, this is a very good start.
I was fortunate enough to get some pretty good tips from a couple
of very talented artists when I was just getting started in the
field and would like to share them with you now:
Make a wire armature cover it with foil and then rough-in the
general shape of your animal.
Bake well (until the sculpey is dark orange).
your muscles on top of this "rough" sculpture.
your teeth (if any) seperately and then insert them into the animal.
your animal has a reoccuring scale/fur/feather pattern, make yourself
a stamp tool for your skin covering.
with the glass eyes in place - don't worry, baking at such a low
temp. won't hurt them and they will cast perfectly.
are just a few suggestions, if you have more please email
me and I will include them in this list.
