I am amused. Nicely done. Well armored, and not overly laden with visible gears. A ducky who will survive your best shot, quack derisively at your electropulsamagnetron, and open his beak to reveal a weapon you really weren't prepared for.
Thank you for me the key is to use colored clays. then i use mica powders to add accents and bring out the colors. i have tried doing the white clay then accrylic paint then the mica powder, but the affect just isn't the same. plus you can paint with the power before the baking which really makes it a part of the clay rather than just laying on top of it.
ah, ok, thank you so much for the detailed info! i`m trying to get mica powders now for a really looong time, but i can`t find any, which are not horrible expencive... you in the us seem to get them quite easy?! i`m working a bit with eye shadow instead, wich works really good, but the colours are limited... does accrylic paint last? i never tried it, i would have thought it would be too thick...
I got some of my mica powders off Amazon.com. shipping is probably where you get hit the hardest. they last awhile so it might be worth it. the eye shadow was a good secondary. the acrylics last if you put a glaze on to keep from chipping. also wih acrylic you need to keep it wet enough so it does not get too thick. but I prefer color clay and mica because the paint becomes part of the clay rather than just being on top of it.
