My box of Sculpey clay says, "DO NOT OVERBAKE!" So would baking in between layers with this stuff be bad? What happens when you overbake anyway? :XD:

Awesome tutorial though! It's been very helpful!

Oh my god. I never thought to bake the darn things before adding more details - smudging out things by accident always drove me nuts and so I haven't tried sculpting again in AGES.

Thanks so much for these tips!

Okay, I lied, another quick question: If you're not working with a base, are you gripping the piece as you work with it?

*Very* useful, thank you. I'm thinking of trying sculpting for the first time, and I have been looking around Deviantart for tutorials before I even purchase the materials. This was by far the most easy to follow. :)

Question though? When you bake it between layers, how long is each back for?

... this totally makes me want to go out and buy materials so I can finally give this a go. I have been wanting to be able to sculpt my own characters and stuff for -ages-! This gives me an idea of where to really start! Thank you! :heart:

No prob ;D I hope you give it a try! It's such an awesome feeling to sculpt your own characters and have them in 3D form. It also really helps feed back into your drawing.

Thanks! It's Scourge, though, not the Werehog.
