Zebraffe by DragonsAndBeasties Zebraffe by DragonsAndBeasties
A little giraffe with zebra markings! This was a rather strange request, but I love how he turned out! The person who commissioned this once tried to get a random plushie zebraffe from one of those claw crane things. She ran out of quarters after a while and when she came back it was gone! She always lamented the loss of that unique plushie and when she saw my giraffes, she decided she needed one in mini sculpture form :XD:

Handmade from Premo Sculpey clay, about 2 inches tall

Please visit my FAQ page [link] before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. Iím not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over ^^;

I believe I already commented on this picture about how much I liked it... :) but I have one silly technical question if you find a moment to answer it. How do you photograph your creations like this? It looks like the background is often scrapbook paper, so do you lay it down flat on the ground? I'm just curious because I've started making my own clay creation thanks to your tutorial, but I'm not sure the best way to photograph them.

Yup it's scrapbook paper! It works great for small items. I'll usually tape it to the wall so part of it is up for the background and part is flat for the sculpture to stand on. Try to photograph them in a bright naturally lit room as well, then there won't be much color correction needed :)

Thank you for the reply!! I'll definitely try that. :D
One last question... when you glaze your creations, does it only need one layer? I bought the same can of glaze that you showed in the youtube video, but after applying it mine still didn't look as shiny as yours do in the pictures.

No problem! You just happened to catch me when I'm actually on DA lol :XD:

Oh mine have about three coats on them. Sometimes four depending on the sculpture. Painted critters sometimes need more. Glazing is a big pain in the butt, but I love the look of it too much to leave them plain.
