Default custom made mandrill figure

that's my first proof of making animal figure. It took me long time to sculpt it. It's still unpainted. After I paint it I will send picture quickly.

Yes, it took me long time. I think it was around 10 hours of work.

Ana,

You have really done a wonderful job. Like others, what did you use to make it and a second question is - Are you going to paint the face?

Dzięki, urzyłam modeliny Fimo soft, wypala się ją w temp. 110C. jest troche bardziej krucha niż materiał schleich, więc trzeba uważać żeby nie spadał z półki.
Thank You. It's clay Fimo soft, oven in 110C. It's more fragile then schleich plastic so I must be careful, it can't fall from shelf.

Default Great model

Really impressed with your sculpting ana.

Once you dry it in the oven why not make a mould of it so that you can make more copies of this model in future for yourself if the first one broke.....or even sell some! (now theres a business idea!)

I would be really excited to see you create an Okapi, Kudu or other antelope figurine.

Excellent work!

Wonderful work, Ana!!!
You're happy if you are able to make such things yourself
Do you have further plans in figure making?
