To answer some of the most common questions or concerns here is a list of questions both related directly to the YouTube Channel and the Store.
I use mainly Fimo soft, which is a German brand of oven-hardening polymer clay and really nice to work with. You can find it on Amazon or directly in my shop.
I have a lot of favorite tools to use and I showcased them on my YouTube-channel, just click here and you’ll get to the video, I also included links where you can buy these on amazon.com, but there is also a collection of my favorites available here.
Unfortunately I don‘t do shoutouts, as I don‘t want to favor anyone. I‘m really sorry and I hope you‘re not too disappointed, but there are just too many people reaching out to me.
If you like sculpting though there is the possibility to win „shelf of the month“ if you share your work online and especially in my clay creators group on Snupps. I try to pick creators to showcase their work on my channel there.
Making your own blueprints to follow while sculpting is really easy. Print out the figure you want to do in the right size and trace the outline on another paper or just draw on top of the image and put lines for the wire inside, then you just have to take measurements and use the photo as reference for the size of the body parts.
And you‘re able to do it for things I haven‘t created yet, as well, so you‘re not limited by what i have done so far.
There are a lot of things you can do to make the process of sculpting easier, generally said working with clean hands and surfaces is a good starting point. Whatever it is you want to do using reference material and doing sketches beforehand is a good idea. Thinking about which part needs to be which color and in which order you could do them is also helpful.
Polymer clay needs to be kneaded beforehand to make it smoother and workable, on the other hand, prebaking parts of your sculpture to fix them while working on top of them is also a good idea!
My camera is a Canon Eos 80D, which I use for most of my photos, sometimes with a regular, cheap tripod for the 360° videos or multiple photos from the same viewpoint. The lens I use mostly is the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM. Other than that I use a seamless paper background, so there are no visible lines in the background, you can easily improvise something similar with bent paper. You can also see my general set-up in some of my Instagram posts.
Hello there, that‘s a great question, but it‘s also probably something where you just have to find your own way. Are you comfortable with showing your face or would you rather just share the process? Do you want to do a voice-over or would you rather just use subtitles?
All in all looking at your favourite Youtubers, also the non-clay-related ones is a good starting point. Write down what you like about them and try to learn from that. Make the titles easy to decipher so people can find your tutorials and also write yourself a script for them so you don‘t stumble while talking.
Try to get a good angle to show what you‘re doing and cut out the unnecessary parts or speed them up, so the videos don‘t get longer than they need to be It‘s a lot of trial and error, especially in the beginning and these are all just suggestions, in the end you have to find your own style and what you feel comfortable to show and share with others. Good luck and lots of fun!
