Making a Cat Demon Sculpture

So here's the video of the making of my Bewilderbeast sculpture, starting with a simple wire armature, and ending with a completed glow in the dark monster demon cat sculpture.  I took these pictures over a period of several days, and the sculpture went through several bakes.  I would sculpt and texture one part, bake it, then work on another part without worrying about messing up the rest of my work.  Since this is a somewhat large sculpture, with many layers of clay, baking it in stages also ensures a strong sculpture.  I only had a vague idea of how this piece would go when I started sculpting, and I just did what felt right as I went along.  The glow in the dark horns, fangs, eyes, and claws were a last minute idea.  I think they turned out quite well.  Even I am amazed at how a bit of wire, aluminum foil, and lumps of polymer clay can become this amazing creature.  I still surprise myself with some of my creations- LOL!  I hope you all like the video, and if you want to see more pictures of the finished project, or purchase him, just check out his listing.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I love that demon cat. Almost as much as the cat I love how you did that video. That is really cool.
