please click download to view!

Thanks for reading all that... but theres still more in the description! XD
Im not to interested in hearing how i've spelled things wrong.. I know I have XD ...well not on purpose or anything ts just ivevitable XD
My main purpose of this tutorial was to let you know how I did these little things... as long as I have conveyed that message I feel i've triumphed. But if there is anything you really don't understand please do say! XD

In the tutorial I said I would give thinks to things so here they are:


SuperSculpey clay to the UK:
[link] <I always order from there and they have been very good! ...apparently you can get supersculpey anywhere in america (;-;)

You can get fimo clay from any art and craft shop all over the UK

Search for Eye pins on ebay if you need them, they are quite cheap.

~ Fluke ~
The picture I printed out and used as a reference can be found here
[link] < and you can find other pictures of fluke linked from there :)

~Other necklaces~
Sora, Riku: [link]
Kairi: [link]
Aeris, Kenny, Tonberry and Stitch: [link]
random earrings: [link]


ahhhh... This tutorial took SO much time to put together... and it was also much harder than I thought XD

I do do these neckalce comissions they cost arround £30 depending on everything, if you would like one please note me about it! :D Ill do more or less any character :)

Please ask any questions? just ask! sure iv forgotten something! XD

I would say more but I really hope the tutorial speaks for itself :)

Ok question: Polymer Clay is toxic. You can't actually put it in the oven unless it's one you use only for clay and not for cooking. What else can you do to dry them up? Or could the sculptures work with das clay?

You don't need a clay specific oven all you need to know is polymer clay safety, as long as you don't burn the clay your oven should be fine to cook in…
amineefreak Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013
Yeah, are there any other types of clay that would be good to use that can actually be put in the oven? I can't get a special clay oven because i'm still a tween, and my mom doesn't think I should get one *sigh*.

no problem!!! XD XD XD
Pandaplay Featured By Owner May 14, 2011
So you are using Polymer clay right? I was wondering when you paint them do you have to pain tthem using acrylic paint?
And also where did you get your tools from (the one where you can mold the clay and create dents int it) and what is it called?
I wanted to make bigger sculptures that stand up on their own...kinda like nenondoroid chibi things. Would that be possible using polymer clay?
tearsofblood321 Featured By Owner May 2, 2011
you have made sculpting so much easier for me :D

Thanks so much for this tutorial! :D
It makes it easier for me to see someone make a chibi step by step-especially when I hardly use clay ^^;

pula-leaf Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
xD You use the same paints as I do lol
bread-doh Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2010
Yes, everybody who does its first sculpt should say that you made this looks extremely easy to do. I live in tropical country, the heat softens the clay so much, that i cannot make the legs visible enough due to accidentally pushed to the work surface. easily solved by cooling the clay to the fridge, though annoying. :D I'm currently working one, that i need to restart about 5 times just to get that ball perfect. xD

I would say to you that you should allow this to be downloaded, as many people could not see this due to deviantART V7 auto horizontal resize to fit browser's size. Or write a little description that "you can save this to your desktop to restore the size".

honestly, you would need 7500px long monitor to see this without downloading.

thanks so much for bringing this to my attention! ddnt realise browers resize it, I've now got this to be able to be downloaded.
Its true it is pretty tricky, I tryed to break it down as much as possible... I live in england so mostly its like a fridge outside XD
when your done wih your model i'd love to see it :)
xxAREESHAxx Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can't see it o.o
It was too small even when I hit full size!
bread-doh Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2010
Y'all can save the force-resized pic to your PC to restore this awesome tut :iconthumbsupplz:

Kittyraft Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008's so tiny! and cute!
They look hard 0.0
Jahobius Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2008
Your sculpting is very cool, but in my opinion your paintjob is quite bad. It looks very flat because you didn't make any highlights or shadows. I know it is quite hard to make them on such tiny things, but it would look much better.
AutumnWynd Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great tutorial. I keep failing when I try to make chibi people. I will be trying this out once I get more clay.This is a very helpful tutorial and you put it together very well. It must've taken you ages.

smilie-terrorist Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007
Wow awesome! I have to try this now! :D
apixelateddream Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2007
Wow, very nice. :) You're quite talented with sculptures; it's very accurate to the picture and still is quite different with your own style and cute! This looks complicated but you're quite skilled with the sculpting. I hope you've kept it up.

(I would comment about this being a dead account and having an awesome name like havingfun, which I came upon on a dead account search, but your awesome sculptures have dragged me away from that trail.)
angrymouse Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2007
it is ok to bake it in your kitchen oven? :slow:
I heard it's not a very good idea.. :s

So detailed and easy to follow! I'm going to try this.

I have a question, is it easier to paint the clay or use colored clay from the get go?
Haya-dono Featured By Owner May 27, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

PoisonPeachPop Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007
Great tutorial, like I mentioned in the other comment. I do have a question though...What are the reasons that the paint would start cracking..? Not chipping off...just cracking XD Thanks :D
