Default Pachyrhinosaurus Bust

I have just finished sculpting and painting this, but I don't know how I mixed gray and brown and it made purple! As you can see, it is better than my dutch rabbit.

Thanks, but I just wish that I hadn't made that mistake on the left side of the frill.

An interesting sculpture. I love the purple and the eyes.

Thanks, I made the eyes by taking two marbles of clay and squishing them. It takes about five or ten tries to get them close to symmetrical.

Maybe it's my age, but for ages I looked at your photos and could not make out what it was meant to be. Other members were congratulatory, so I knew I must be missing something. I was almost on the point of writing and saying OK I give up what is it? But, first I went back to the beginning and there was the answer. I've only recently started looking at this section in the forum and am intrigued to know what people use to make their models. Suggestions gladly received.

I use Sculpey Polymer clay, I think a few other people do the same.

Thank you for that. I see there are some tutorials about using Sculpy. I have got to get some now and have a go. Mind you, don't hold your breath, I may never manage to make anything!

It takes a lot of practice to do anything. I got mine when I used to do stop motion, which were more prehistoric animals like: apatosaurus, anatotitan, tyrannosaurus, entelodont, triceratops, and stegosaurus.
