Mica powders & wings
- Greetings everyone. I just joined the sculpting group, and hope
someone will be able to help me with a few questions I have. I've
been lurking around here for a couple of months, great BB!
I saw a post on here last week directing the poster to a place to
purchase mica powder. It was a great site, with lots of varnishes,
shellac and all sorts of things. Their prices were very good.
Unfortunately I didn't bookmark it, and now I can't find the old
post. Does anyone have a clue?
Also, I am starting to sculpt winged creatures, but I want to make
the wings detachable. What are your methods of making wings
detachable on polymer clay figures? One method I tried was not very
functional, as every time you picked up the figure, the wings fell
My name is Kaern and I make stained glass and polymer clay-no mold-
sculptures. Glad to be here, and thanks!
- Welcome aboard.
For wings, maybe a fairly deep piece of wire or rod that could mate up with
a slightly larger piece of tubing sunk into the sculpture? The inside gauge
of hobby copper tubing often matches the outside gauge of one a couple steps
I hope that paragraph makes some sense. :)
