Alien Project – Sculpture!

This was probably one of the most exciting parts of this project, as I’d never really worked with Super Sculpey before. Now that I had created the skate deck, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted my hand to look like in terms of shape and texture. I bought a couple meters of copper wire as a way to create a mesh for the hand.

Here’s what I started out with:

- Acrylic Paint (shades of green)
- Copper wire (2 meters)
- Super Sculpey (1 pound)
- Carving tools (or use your fingers)
- An oven (to bake the clay once you’ve made it)

Materials:

Shaped the sculpey after kneading it for a bit…I didn’t really end up using the mesh itself but I did use it as a reference to create the shape.

After baking, painted it with a couple shades of green and that was it!!
