THE ELEPEN HOLDER by MindoftheMasons THE ELEPEN HOLDER by MindoftheMasons
Due to frustrations with a current commission my wife suggested another idea for my pen holders. An Elephant! Needing to fulfill the artistic itch I bust out some sculpey and went to it. There we have it....

THE ELEPEN HOLDER!

I'm all over the place... :D

Thank you :D Super Sculpey is the clay I use for molding. You can bake it for 15 minutes and then Boom! You got a hardened molding!

Well, with Sculpey I don't think so. There is another sculpting clay I used a couple years ago called Magic Sculpt. It is a two part epoxy kind of way of working. You mix hardener and resin together and it hardens over night. So you do all the sculpting you want and then let it sit, Bladow...You have your finished mold.

I steered away from it because Sculpey is SO MUCH NICER to use. BBBUUUUTTTT if you are using plastic parts like some of my robots, you can't necessarily put that in the oven. It would come in handy to use Magic Sculpt at that point. I instead, use a Heat Gun and work around those hurdles. :D

Thanks sooo much for the infos dude ^^ !

I did a little googling and I saw some post stating that you could hardened Super Sculpey in boiling water, is that true ?
(sorry if I'm bothering you >.< )

No problem, and Yes I have seen this option as well with the Boiling method. To tell you the truth...I think it is from people that just miss judged time/degree of the oven. OOORRRR if your mold on lets say, a Munny...is top heavy or something. There is a solution to that. USE TIN FOIL! You can mold foil whichever way you need it to be, make it a stand for whatever rounded surface. It has worked for me a couple times.

BUT boiling it would be around having to mess around with a Modded Foil Stand. I just think it isn't worth the time. Many other custom artists just do the oven method.
