One of the things I love to create is sculpture, even though I haven't done a lot. In the last few years, my sculpting has been mostly done while customizing Star Wars toys and figures. It was then that I discovered "Sculpey", a great substance to use on small pieces. It cured when heated, either in an oven or by submerging in hot water. One of the largest pieces I sculpted at this time was a creature from the "Expanded Universe" of Star Wars (non-movie character). The Krayyt dragon was modeled from the cover of a children's novel:I started out by making a wire frame, bulking it out with aluminium foil, and then layering sculpey over that. The dragon ended up being so large (about 8 inches tall and 10 inches long) that I had to "cook" him to cure in a roaster filled with boiling water. Mmmmm....roasted Krayyt !
