Ghost Trick Missile Sculpture-Version 2 by LeiliaK Ghost Trick Missile Sculpture-Version 2 by LeiliaK
Wow...some days I feel like I'm not improving at all, and then I go back and resculpt something I made less than a year ago and I realize how far I've come! :D

This Missile was a commission, based off of my previous sculpture here:

I was super excited for the opportunity to sculpt this guy again, I adore Missile more than I can even describe. XD My only regret is that I have to give this guy up, I don't think I've ever been this attached to a commission before. ;_;

Missile is approximately 2.5 inches tall and 3 inches long. He is made from a mixture of Super Sculpey/Sculpey Firm polymer clay, painted with acrylics and sealed with a matte finish. The eyes, nose and tongue are glazed for extra shine. :)

May I ask what you used for the matte finish?

Certainly! I use Testor's Dullcote. It's a spray finish, I usually find it in the model section of my local craft store. I really love the finish it gives, and it doesn't get sticky or seem to react with my paint the way some spray finishes do. The only complaint I have is that the cans are very tiny and don't last me too long. :/

Recently I've started coating my figures with a gloss sealant(Varathane's Polyurethane) first to strengthen the clay and make is smooth, and then using the Testor's over it. That seems to work really well so far, but you can definitely use just the Testor's as well.

Thanks! The only time I've tried a matte spray on my models it never seemed to dry completely and left the models slightly tacky. I've been weary of spending money on other spray matte varnishes in case they reacted the same.

No problem! I've always been super nervous about using spray finishes on my sculptures for that exact same reason. Testors Dullcote is the only one I've had luck with. Though I will note that I've only used it over painted clay, so I can't say for certain whether it would work as well for colored clay or not.

Well thanks for the info and advice. I guess I'll have to try it out some time and see how it goes.

How adorable! I find dogs kind of hard to sculpt, those that are fluffy at least. >_< I think You did really well here. :D

Thanks! ^_^ It's definitely taken me a lot of practice to figure out how to sculpt fluffy dogs well. I still have a lot to learn, but I think I'm definitely making progress! :D
