make sure you sketch out a few ideas of what you want to make before you start or at least have a lot of reference pictures to go off of.
Step 1: Materials
3. amber shellac
4. apoxie sculpt
6. liquid latex
7. flex foam
9. faux fur
10. sculpting tools
Step 2: Getting started.
so you have to start with a base
in this case I used Styrofoam
I used a very dense floral foam and then shaped it and covered it in a few coats of amber shellac to give it extra strength
you can use anything as an understructure really including another sculpture but it really just matters on what will work best for whatever you want to make
once all the coats of shellac are dry you can start putting on a base of clay and start roughing out your design
Step 3: GET SCULPTING!
i used two plastic teeth molds that i made for an earlier project to assist in the sculpting of the teeth
i also used two plastic balls to stand in for the eyes
the claws and large fangs were all made out of apoxie sculpt.
once you are happy with your over all sculpture you can begin the moulding process
