As discussed in the Big-Mouthed, Putty Catcher thread, this thread will be a sculpt-along-with-me tutorial during which I'll walk you through the process of making a BMPC of your own.    Why the BMP

Step 1: Building the Armature   The first and arguably most important step of any sculpt is to build the armature.  Normally, this process would start with reference material and a template to get t

Step 2: Sculpting the Rock Base   Typically, if a critter is standing on the ground, I sculpt it first and add the base after the fact; however, in this case, the base is necessary to be there befor

Size 0 cupped clay shaper sees the most use in my arsenal of that which I cannot make myself, followed closely by the pointed and the flat. Usually, the three come together in a set with two others I don't use.

 

 

In truth, I do 90% of the work with 4 tools:

 

- My fingers

- Metal dental spatula (though many other metal bladed, but not sharp, tools would work; I know some who use a dulled Exacto knife for this). I use this for shaping, rough layout, and blending,

- Cupped (0) clay shaper

- Fine-pointed, leaf blade I made myself. This guy does almost all of my detail work save for a few applications where a pin tip is needed.

Thanks!

I misplaced my sculpting tools  :down: worried i left them somewhere at ReaperCon

 

Are you talking about the ones you got from me (burnisher and leaf blade tools)?  I found an extra set in my stuff after ReaperCon.  I'm wondering if you left them at my station by accident.

Nothing worse then losing your tools, I lost my smoother the other day and I was beside myself lol. I use wood tools and when I am done I place the smoother in my mouth since it is sculpt smooth sculpt smooth so it sees a lot of action, so much so that it is a darker colour then the rest from my spit over the months lol.

I feel especially bad for losing them because Talespinner made them for me  :down: I've turned my hobby desk completely inside out without finding them, and was worried they actually were left at ReaperCon

I just finished the lesson. I can't say I was 100% successful, but I learned a lot. I made my tentacles too thin and didn't stick them well enough to the base, so one broke. The galvanized wire I used for the armature didn't really want to let the putty stick. The putty I used is Magic Sculpt, which is all that I have and I have quite a lot of it, so that's why my model is gray. As I was removing the figure from the cork the body separated from the base, so I put a drop of super glue in to fix it, which I understand is a no-no for models intended for production.
