Thank you very much, kind sirLooking really good so far!
Decided to do some gum work for the teeth out of model magic, and I ended up REALLY liking how it turned out! I went in and coated all the model magic with wood glue, but it's still pretty pliable. Will have to hope that the sealer coat will further strengthen these bits, as most of the teeth are fairly soft round the middle, too. (The tips of most of the teeth are razor sharp, though! I've cut myself at least twice now on them....will need to find a way to idiot-proof them before this gets installed into the haunt).
I knew I wanted there to be a bit of build-up wherever a horn is present. I had started to use Celluclay, and HOLY CRAP I don't think buyer's remorse was ever so present in anything purchased before. It was just awful...maybe because I was using glue as the mix-in rather than water, but ICK. It was sticky, messy...just horrible. I saw Allen Hopps use Aves Apoxie Sculpt once, so I ordered that. I've constructed some of the other finer details out of it that would probably be subjected to harsher wear-and-tear. This stuff is awesome, but not cheap. I went a little overboard in places, which is really a bummer because the Apoxie Sculpt dries ROCK HARD. I will probably have to take a dremel to it at some point if I want to make any redactions later on.
Really not sure how I feel about the added flare to the nostril here, as I've also added it to the eyebrow area. I just didn't want everything so rounded-off.
I also ordered some Magic Sculpt, which should be here next week. I'm eager to see how it performs compared to the Apoxie Sculpt!
