You keep outdoing yourself! I apologize if this has been asked before, but, details on the detail work please? Did you semi-bake then add the filigree, or did you do it all at once?

dustysculptures Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hmm lets see, for this piece there wasn't any prebaking, it was all done in one go. However much like Spitefire:[link] I layered the suit on her body then added the extraneous plates, colors, etc.

Hope this helps ^^ And no worries, I enjoy answering questions~

how much would it cost, in money and time if i got you to make a similar one for me?

dustysculptures Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
A similar one would go for about $140 USD depending on what you're looking for~ And it might be a while as I've got a list piling up. But I can add you to a wait list if you're willing~

no, that's a little too steep for my wallet right now.
i'll definitely keep you in mind for the future though, once i get a more steady source of income

^^ Alrighty then~

Just to let you know, I do make Filly versions and simpler mare versions that cost much less (you can see the commission page in my signature), Luna cost that much because the commissioner wanted her to be %100 custom.

That outfit is cool! It goes well with the one I just posted because of the Mass Effect headset. Is this your first Luna? I don't remember seeing one in your gallery...

Thanks! Technically this isn't my first Luna. I made a season 1 Luna a year ago that I never posted to dA. But this is my first s2 Luna with the wavy hair.

I just saw your ginormous Luna, and it's quite impressive! And she does go well with Mass Effect Lhna here by shear coincidence :XD:

Okay, well I was going to say welcome to the Luna club, but...

Thanks, she was pretty cool bat that whole thing was a nightmare to do. I charged $400 but if I had to do it again I would probably charge $700! It was $70 just in materials... let alone the MANY hours it took. That chrome was the biggest nightmare of all but it sure looks nice.

:XD: Thanks for the welcome; honestly I would count this as my first entry into the Luna club too~ (its much better than my last one atleast)

but yeah that is expensive (to say the least) Not to mention the up scaling problems. I can only imagine~
I've actually had ideas for making a much larger version but thats probably gonna wait until I can clear my list some.
Its a really cool piece and the base w/ the sound is awesome~ I'm sure the commissioner will love it ^^

You're welcome.

It took me probably 60 hours to make that one! The ultramarine I had to use on her was like rubber. I pushed into it are dragged to try to ge the right shape or smoothness and it would just bounce back most of the way. Even after prepping it! She does love it, but my biggest fear is one that you are well aware of, but much more so on this one because of the size....breakage during shipping!

Shipping :P its always the enemy of these things! So much time and effort goes into making sure they don't break~ Also inconsistent clay sucks alot too. I just sculpted yesterday with really bad rubbery clay also. Ends up that I hate what I made and will probably scrap and redo it today. Bah

But I'm glad she likes it. Its definitely a mantle piece~
Reply
:iconmadponyscientist:
MadPonyScientist Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012
Yeah! A mantle piece if it isn't broken to badly!

I scrapped that Luna at about 70% 3 times because of not being happy and in the end I still wasn't happy because I can do better when the clay allows it. Just curious....what color was it that you had that was rubbery? I am really starting to hate Sculpey III because it is NEVER the same. Not even the color. I just did RD yesterday and will post her today (a pretty cool one) and I ran out of the red I was using and opened a new pack of exactly the same red but the new batch was darker!!! I never even paid attention to that before. Just the inconsistent textures but now I will have to watch for that as well...or find a company that has better quality standards!p

Oh yes I know the feeling, that's why I have to mix it with a variety of other polymer clays, just to get it consistent.
Some of the clays I get are just rubbery, but the most recent one was a filly Applejack I made a couple of days ago. I ended up scraping her just cause the clay wouldn't stay.

The color also is an issue. But over the year I've just learned to deal with it by simply mixing colors together~ Its just part of my process now to never trust the color of the package and mix my own (unless I'm using it for small details or something) I have probably 100 little baggies each labeled with variety of colors I've mixed :XD:

I've read that companies like Kato or FIMO have better standards (tho FIMO is still suspect) but Sculpey clearly isn't even in the ballpark and its pretty obvious they just make it for kids.
