This sculpture was made from super sculpey, a polymer clay. I formed it over a foil and wire armature. After sculpting the head and body I made the legs separately and then baked them before attaching them to the body so it would be much sturdier when it stood. I did the same with the antlers. Then came the scary part- standing the whole thing up in the oven and hoping that even though it was well supported that nothing would droop or fall off. Well, the ear fell off and the raised leg drooped. After some angst I broke off the leg and made a new one. This time I laid the sculpture on its side to bake the new leg. Then I glued the ear back on- disaster averted! Now all he needs is some paint! :3
