About The Group

A gallery for art created by readers of Creature Sculpt by Emily Coleman (emilySculpts).

All levels of artists are encouraged to join and show off your work. We do ask that you only upload photos which can be clearly seen (reasonably well lit and not blurry).

Please try to keep it to one image per piece (excluding WIP photos). If you have multiple views, please combine them into one image rather than uploading two separate views.

Feel free to share your stories and post your questions or comments on the book.

You can also read or write your own review on Good Reads.

This group is run by emilySculpts and phantom42

Hello All,

Just a few friendly reminders, as I have had to remove and move a lot of images lately.

- Please upload only ONE image per sculpture.  If you want to show multiple views, please combine them into one image.   The WIP gallery is the exception to this.

- Please be sure that you are uploading clear, high quality photos.  This is the only quality control we have here.

- Art dolls must have some sort of sculpted element.  Full plush will not be accepted.

- Please keep your uploads to the marketplace to five (5) per person.  Once an item has sold, please delete it from the marketplace gallery.  Instructions on how to do this are listed in the journal entry prior to this one.

Thanks so much for making this place so awesome :)

~ Emily ~

Thanks to your book, I have a better understanding of how to properly create a wire armature. One question, though, concerning the wooden bases...about how thick should the bases be to accommodate the U staples? At our local craft store, the wooden pieces were very thin. Thank you! :)

i am so happy to hear that!  you definitely don't want to buy TOO thin of a base.  the ones i get are around  an inch thick or so.

Id say about a half inch to an inch, depending on the size of the staples :)

I am in love with your book its is so amazingly helpful and has really got me in to sculpting! :heart:

I do have one question, I just bought a bottle of the plastikote sandable primer you suggest (was a huge pain trying to get it in the UK for some reason hehe!) to prime my big dragon sculpt before I paint it, but people keep telling me horror stories of their sculpts getting sticky or melting after using primers so now I am super nervous! Have you ever had any problems with it before?  x

i am so happy to hear about this.  

YES, i have had such problems with primer.  it usually stems from spraying too close to the sculpture or applying the layers to thickly.  make sure to apply in quick, thin coats and let each layer dry before applying the next coat.  plastikote i have never had any problems with as it is very high quality.  yu ight want to practice on something before priming one of your sculptures, especially if you have never used primer before.  if there is any "grittiness" after priming, you can use fine steel wool to clean it up.

Thanks so much for your reply :) I went ahead and gave it a go and it worked perfectly, a lovely surface for painting on although next time I might do a bit of cleaning up like you say as it was gritty in some places. I am very very proud of my big purple dragon hehe :heart: Thanks again! x
